Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D)(OTC PINK:ALXDF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the first tranche of its previously announced brokered private placement (the "Offering"). Pursuant to the Offering, led by Sprott Private Wealth LP (the "Agent"), the Company issued 40,309,090 units ("Units") of the Company at a price of $0.055 per Unit and 45,067,000 flow-through Common Shares ("FT Shares") at a price of $0.06 per FT Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $4,921,019.95. Each Unit consisted of one common share of the Company ("Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.08 for 36 months following the closing of the Offering. The Agent received a cash commission equal to 6.0% of the proceeds of the Offering and compensation options ("Compensation Options") equal to 6.0% of the Units and FT Shares issued under the Offering.

The Company anticipates closing on a second tranche of the private placement for further proceeds of $203,500 on December 21, 2016, for aggregate gross proceeds under the Offering of $5,124,519.95.
The net proceeds from the sale of the Offering will be used to fund the exploration and development of the Company's Cadillac Break properties in Quebec and for general corporate and working capital purposes. The proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the FT Shares will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses that are "flow-through mining expenditures" (as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) on the Company's Cadillac Break properties in Quebec, which will be renounced to the subscribers in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of the gross proceeds raised from the issue of FT Shares. All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws. The Offering remains subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
