Alexandria Accelerates Akasaba Drilling Program with Addition of Second Drill Rig

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D)(PINKSHEETS:ALXDF) is pleased to report that it has deployed a second drill rig to accelerate its 10,000 m drill program on its Akasaba project in Val d'Or, Quebec. The goal is to expand on known gold-copper mineralization by testing geophysical targets along strike with, and below, the mine-area Current Resources.

This past winter, the Company completed a 78 line-km surface Induced Polarization ("IP") survey over the Akasaba and adjacent Valdora properties, as well as a down-hole IP survey below the historic Akasaba Mine, both of which identified a number of strong targets for follow up drilling.

The first phase of this drilling program is testing 3 principal target      
areas:                                                                     
 1) a large, 1,000 meter long IP anomaly approximately 1 km east along      
    strike with the Akasaba mine area (the "Kettle Zone");                  
 2) deep targets below the Current Resources along the main Mine Zone; and  
 3) deep targets along the North Zone, a gold-bearing zone north of, and    
    parallel to, the main Mine Zone.                                        

The first phase of the program consists of deep drilling on the main Mine Zone and the North zone, and involves 3 new drill holes and deepening 2 previous Alexandria drill holes, totaling 4,000 m. Drilling on the Kettle Zone consists of 5 drill holes totaling 2,500 m. A further 3,500 m of drilling are planned as follow-up holes.

Between 2009 and 2013, Alexandria completed 74,157 m of drilling on its Akasaba project, which is located approximately 15 km east of Val d'Or, Quebec, in the center of the Company's Cadillac Break property package, a 35 km long group of properties totaling 676 mineral claims. This drilling allowed Alexandria to build significant gold and gold-copper resources along the main Akasaba Mine Trend (Press Release February 7, 2013), including the discovery, in early 2012, of the West Zone gold-copper deposit (Press Release June 26, 2012).

In early 2014, Alexandria sold the West Zone gold-copper deposit to Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd., for $5 million cash, and 2% NSR on all metals after 210,000 ounces of gold are produced (Press Release January 14, 2014). As a result of this sale, Current Resources (National Instrument 43-101 compliant) that remain at Akasaba consist of both underground, high grade resources and near-surface, bulk tonnage resources as follows (Recalculated by Christian D'Amours at Geopointcom in Val d'Or, Quebec - see Press Release, February 20, 2014):

Table 1: Current Resource Estimate at Akasaba (NI 43-101 Compliant)

Table 1 Notes                                                               
 1. Mineral resources reported are recalculated from the National Instrument
    ("NI") 43-101 compliant resources reported on March 27th 2012 (Main and 
    Satellite Pits) and February 7th, 2013 (Underground) without including  
    resources that were encompassed on the 14 claims sold to Agnico Eagle on
    January 13th, 2014. Recalculation has been reviewed by Christian        
    D'Amours of Geopointcom in Val d'Or, QC.                                
 2. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves have not demonstrated  
    economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially 
    affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation,          
    sociopolitical, marketing, or other relevant issues, although the       
    Company is not aware of any such issues.                                
 3. The quantity and grade of reported inferred resources in this estimation
    are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to  
    define these inferred resources as an Indicated or Measured mineral     
    resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in      
    upgrading them.                                                         
 4. The mineral resources were estimated using the Canadian institute of    
    Mining, metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on mineral        
    Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines prepared by the CIM  
    Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted by CIM Council.   
 5. Assumptions for the Resource Calculation for Underground: (a) Gold      
    Price, $1,325/oz., (b) Cut-off Grade, Underground, 2.25 g/t Au, Open-   
    pit, 0.5 g/t, (c) Bulk Density, Mine area underground and open pits,    
    Specific Gravity 2.8; (d) Minimum true width, Underground, 2.5 m, all   
    Open Pits, 5m, (e) Blasting/Mucking costs, Underground, $68/tonne, Open-
    Pit, $5.75/tonne, (f) Milling Costs, $12/tonne, (g) Overburden removal  
    costs, $3/cubic meter, (h) Open pit shell optimized for best revenue,   
    (i) Geostatistical analysis indicate no grade capping is necessary, (j) 
    recovered ounces are based on 92% recovery.                             

In addition to the geophysical surveys completed at Akasaba this past winter, the Company also completed a series of IP surveys on its western Cadillac Break property package as part of a broad re-evaluation of the geology and geophysics of the area. Company geologists have identified several new strong geophysical targets on its Ducros, Oramaque, Orenada and Annamaque projects 5-7 km west of Akasaba, which are coincident with historic gold-copper-moybdenum targets, similar to those discovered at Akasaba. Alexandria intends to begin drill testing some of these this fall.

Program design, management, and Quality Control/Quality Assurance are governed by Alexandria's exploration group of which Philippe Berthelot, P.Geo, is the Company's Qualified Person. Mr. Berthelot has reviewed the results in this press release. The QA/QC program is consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices and has been previously addressed in the NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Cadillac Break properties (February 2008) as well as in subsequent NI 43-101 reports found on the Company's website or on www.sedar.com.
