  VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 18 (MARKET WIRE) --
ALIX RESOURCES CORP. ("Alix" or the "Company") (TSX
VENTURE:AIX)(FRANKFURT:37N) is pleased to announce the completion of
drilling results for the Money Rock / West Pogo gold project, located 80
kilometers southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska, and 3.5 kilometers west of the
Pogo gold mine. Four NQ core drill holes were completed on the project
for a total meterage of 1,474 meters (4,836 ft.), and focused on testing
the subsurface expression of a surface rock and soil gold anomaly that
extends for over 1,000 meters (3,281 ft.). Gold assays exceeding one gram
per tonne were intersected in three holes, and extensive alteration of
the style observed at the Pogo Mine in all four holes suggest that
drilling has intersected the margins of a gold-bearing system.
Significant intervals of gold mineralization (greater than 0.45 g/tonne)
are presented in the table below.

    On the West Pogo property, drillhole WP-12-01 intersected 44 meters (144
ft.) of paragneiss followed by metagranite to the end of the hole at 322
meters (1055 ft.). The gold intercepts lie within a 95 meter (311 ft.)
zone of dolomite-sericite alteration overprinted by iron oxides after
sulfides. Drillhole WP-12-02 was collared 832 meters to the
east-northeast and intersected 37 meters (121 ft.) of metagranite, mixed
tonalite and metagranite from 37-91 meters (121-298 ft.), mixed tonalite
and paragneiss from 91-148 meters (298-485 ft.), metagranite from 148-183
meters (485-600 ft.), and tonalite and gneiss from 183 meters to the end
of the hole at 288 meters (944 ft.). Gold occurs with quartz, surrounded
by iron oxide alteration that occurs intermittently throughout the entire
drillhole. 

    At Money Rock, MR-12-01 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 (194 ft.),
followed by alternating intervals of metagranite from 59-268 meters
(194-879 ft.), paragneiss from 268-308 meters (879-1,011 ft.),
metagranite from 308-328 meters (1,011-1,076 ft.), and paragneiss to the
end of the hole from 328-401 meters (1,076-1,315 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 (450-1,518.6 ft.). Gold in both holes
occurs in quartz-arsenopyrite-pyrite veins associated with broad zones of
patchy sericite-dolomite-silica alteration. The alteration is similar in
style and intensity to that reported in country rocks adjacent to the
Liese veins that are presently exploited at the Pogo Mine (Rhys and
others, 2003, Mineralium Deposita, v.38, p.863-875). Combined with the
gold assays, the drilling results suggest that the margins of a gold
mineralized system have been intercepted. A map of the drilling locations
and simplified graphic logs can be seen at the Alix website
www.alixresources.com. 

    Core was sawed in half and sampled at roughly one meter intervals, then
delivered by truck to ALS-Chemex (Fairbanks, Alaska) for sample
preparation, after which sample pulps were shipped to the ALS Minerals
facility in North Vancouver, B.C. for assay. ALS Minerals has ISO
9001:2008 and ISO 17025 accreditation as per the Standards Council of
Canada. Gold assays were by fire assay with AAS finish (ALS protocol
Au-AA24), and trace elements by ICP-AES after nitric aqua regia digestion
(ALS protocol ME-ICP41). Samples were submitted with blanks and standards
inserted into the sample stream. 

    Alix President and CEO Mike England states, "We are very excited by our
first round of drilling at Money Rock / West Pogo. Our gold results are
only in the few grams per tonne range, but we have confirmed that we are
in a gold-mineralizing system, and we intend to further explore that
system in our 2013 exploration program." 

    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).
