Eight Claims Cover 162 Hectares In Red Lake Mining District
ALX Resources Corp.(TSXV: AL) has purchased an additional eight claim units at its 100%-owned Vixen Gold Project located in the Red Lake Mining District of Ontario, Canada.
Vixen consists of three sub-projects totalling 10,230 hectares (25,280 acres) staked within the Birch-Uchi greenstone belt and is located approximately 60 km east of Red Lake. The eight claim units comprise approximately 162 hectares (399 acres) and are located within the Vixen South claim block.
To date, the Red Lake Mining District has produced over 28 million ounces of gold since mines began production in 1925. Historic gold mines in the Red Lake camp include the Campbell mine, the Red Lake mine, and the Couchenour-Williams mine, all multi-million ounce gold producers.
Vixen lies within the Birch-Uchi greenstone belt, a geological trend located to the northeast of Red Lake that hosts numerous historical gold mines and showings and is highly-prospective for new showings of gold mineralisation.
The Argosy Mine, located approximately two km from the Vixen North claim boundary, produced approximately 102,000 ounces of gold from 1934 to 1952. The Springpole Gold Project, which hosts a multi-million ounce gold resource and is operated by First Mining Gold Corp., is located approximately 6.0 kilometres from the Vixen North boundary.
ALX considers Vixen historically underexplored where areas of limited outcrop have inhibited surface exploration and utilizes detailed prospecting, leading-edge geochemical techniques, and geophysical surveys to identify new drill targets.
ALX is based in Vancouver, BC, Canada
