Alexis Files Final Prospectus on Financing: Prepares for Snow Lake and Reinforces Financial Position

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 27, 2010) -


ALEXIS MINERALS CORPORATION (TSX:AMC)(OTCQX:AXSMF) ("Alexis" or the "Company") announced today that it has filed its final short form prospectus for the previously announced marketed Offering (the "Offering") of units of the Company (the "Units") priced at $0.15 per Unit (see News Releases: July 14 and August 6, 2010) for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of a minimum of $8.85 million and a maximum $12.5 million. The Offering is scheduled to close on September 2, 2010. Closing is subject to certain conditions, including approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Offering is being led by Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. and a syndicate including NCP Northland Capital Partners Inc.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each full common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles its holder to purchase one additional Common Share at a price of $0.40 for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering, subject to acceleration in certain circumstances. The Company has also granted to the agents an over-allotment option exercisable for a period of 30 days from the date of closing of the Offering, to purchase up to such number of additional Units as is equal to 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, at the Offering price. A copy of the prospectus is available on SEDAR at

Alexis intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering primarily to advance its key capital programs for the next twelve months as it initiates the next phase of its strategic plan focused on the reopening of the Snow Lake Gold Mine in Manitoba. A portion of funds will be devoted towards preliminary work at Snow Lake including the feasibility study, care and maintenance, and the initial stages of refurbishing the ramp portal at the #3 Zone. The Company also intends to use a portion of the net proceeds to settle accounts payables and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The Company also reports it has entered into an amended and restated credit facility agreement (the "Credit Agreement") with RMB Australia Holdings Limited ("RMB") in respect of the $2,150,000 loan (the "Loan") previously advanced by RMB to New Britannia Mine Ltd. ("New Britannia"). Alexis assumed the Loan through the acquisition of Garson Gold Corp.
