ALIX RESOURCES CORP. ("Alix" or the "Company") (TSX
VENTURE:AIX)(FRANKFURT:37N) is pleased to announce the completion of its
2012 exploration program at the Money Rock / West Pogo gold project,
located 80 kilometers southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska. Two NQ core drill
holes were completed on the West Pogo portion of the project, and two
were completed at Money Rock for a total meterage of 1,474 meters
(4,835.5 ft.). The four inclined holes tested the subsurface expression
of a surface rock and soil gold anomaly that extends for over 1,000
meters (3,000 ft.) across both properties, and all holes encountered
zones of hydrothermal alteration and sulfide mineralization. The project
is located only 3.5 kilometers (two miles) west of the Pogo Mine,
operated by Sumitomo Metals Corp. and producing nearly 400,000 ounces of
gold each year (Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys
Special Report 65, 2011).

    At West Pogo, drillhole WP-12-01 was collared on the northern edge of the
claims, and drillhole WP-12-02 was collared 832 meters (2,730 ft.) to the
east-northeast. As reported previously, two drillholes on the West Pogo
portion of the project encountered metagranite with sericite-altered,
iron-stained zones of brecciation and veining with arsenopyrite +/-
pyrite that appeared to increase with depth (see news release, July 25,

    At Money Rock, the first drillhole was collared 732 meters (2,400 ft.)
north-northeast of WP-12-02 and drilled to the southeast. Drillhole
MR-12-01 encountered paragneiss from surface to 59 meters (195 ft.),
followed by alternating intervals of metagranite from 59-268 meters
(195-881 ft.), paragneiss from 268-308 meters (881-1,011 ft.),
metagranite from 308-328 meters (1,011-1,077 ft.), and paragneiss to the
end of the hole from 328-401 meters (1,314 ft.). Drillhole MR-12-02 was
drilled from the same collar and directed to the east-southeast,
encountering mixed paragneiss and metagranite from surface to 46 meters
(150 ft.), followed by metagranite from 46-110 meters (150-360 ft.),
paragneiss from 110-137 meters (360-450 ft.), and metagranite to the end
of the hole from 137-463 meters (450-1519.5 ft.). Both drillholes exhibit
broad zones of sericite-carbonate-silica alteration with arsenopyrite and
other sulfides in veins and as disseminations. Collectively, all four
holes have demonstrated continuous alteration and mineralization at depth
beneath the 1,000 meter long surface gold anomaly. More detailed
descriptions will be provided as logs are completed and complete assays
are received in the coming weeks. The exploration program also included
the collection of 31 silt, 387 soil, and 119 rock samples over the
project area. 

    Alix is exploring the West Pogo part of the project under an agreement
with Corvus Gold Inc. (TSX:KOR) whereby Alix will complete USD $5M in
work on the project and pay $125,000 over five years to earn a 60%
interest in the project (see news release March 5th, 2012).
