Alexandria Completes Acquisition of Gullrock Gold Property in Red Lake, Ontario

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 15, 2016) - Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(OTC PINK:ALXDF)(FRANKFURT:A9D) is pleased to announce that it has completed the final cash payment to earn 100% mineral rights ownership of its Gullrock gold project adjacent to the Goldcorp Red Lake Mine property in Red Lake, Ontario.

The Gullrock property lies along the MacKenzie-Cochenour-Campbell/Red Lake Mine Trend, which has produced some 24 million ounces of gold over the past 70 years. Alexandria's property stretches for 7 km along the Mine Trend and is underlain by geology similar to that of the adjacent Goldcorp property.

Eric Owens, President and CEO, stated, "We are enthusiastic about our first steps taken on this property, located in the world-class mining district of Red Lake. We look forward to a productive future here."

Alexandria originally acquired the rights to the Gullrock project as a result of the Company's purchase of Murgor Resources in 2015. The Company has begun line-cutting on the claims in order to complete a 20 line-km Induced Polarization survey over the western portion of the property. The results of this study will assist in the identification of future drill hole targets.
