Vancouver, October 26, 2021 - ALX Resources Corp. (TSXV: AL) (FSE: 6LLN) (OTC: ALXEF) ("ALX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has commenced a helicopter-supported ground prospecting program at the Javelin and McKenzie Lake Uranium Projects ("Javelin", or the "Project") in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. Javelin and McKenzie Lake are located near the eastern margin of the Athabasca Basin within 65 kilometres (40 miles) southeast of the McArthur River Uranium Mine. The ground prospecting program is targeting radioactive anomalies identified from a high-resolution airborne radiometric and magnetic survey just completed on ALX's claims.
Javelin and McKenzie were each acquired during a recent staking rush that began in mid-September 2021, both by staking and by acquisition from an arm's-length vendor. Recent exploration in the region has produced multiple new uranium discoveries - by Valor Resources Ltd., by 92 Energy Ltd. and by Baseload Energy Corp. Each of these discoveries appear structurally controlled within basement rocks, which lie just outside the mapped boundary of the Athabasca Basin sandstone.

During September and October, ALX contracted Special Projects Inc. ("SPI") of Calgary, Alberta to fly both the Javelin and McKenzie Lake projects with its proprietary radiometric system, which was instrumental in locating buried radioactive boulders that led to the discovery of the Triple R Uranium Deposit in 2012. SPI surveyed ALX's claims on 50-metre and 100-metre line spacings for total coverage of approximately 306 square kilometres (118 square miles).
Weather permitting, the current field work will consist of reconnaissance-scale prospecting of areas identified by SPI as having elevated radioactivity. In addition, prominent structural features with corresponding anomalous radioactivity and historical mineral showings will be examined.

Statements in this document which are not purely historical are forward-looking statements, including any statements regarding beliefs, plans, expectations or intentions regarding the future. Forward-looking statements in this news release include: the Javelin Uranium Project ("Javelin") and the McKenzie Lake Project ("McKenzie Lake") may be prospective for uranium mineralization; the Company's plans to undertake exploration activities at Javelin and McKenzie Lake, and expend funds on Javelin and McKenzie Lake. It is important to note that the Company's actual business outcomes and exploration results could differ materially from those in such forward-looking statements. Risks and uncertainties include that ALX may not be able to fully finance exploration at Javelin and McKenzie Lake, including drilling; our initial findings at Javelin and McKenzie Lake may prove to be unworthy of further expenditure; commodity prices may not support exploration expenditures at Javelin and McKenzie Lake; and economic, competitive, governmental, societal, public health, environmental and technological factors may affect the Company's operations, markets, products and share price.
