TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION, DISTRIBUTION OR DISSEMINATION DIRECTLY, OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES.

Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D) is pleased to announce that it has completed the second tranche of a brokered private placement financing (the "Private Placement") for proceeds of $1,577,538, bringing the total proceeds for the financing as initially announced on October 30, 2012 to $3,211,538. The Private Placement was completed by Laurentian Bank Securities Inc. and its selling group members (together, the "Agent").

The second tranche of the Private Placement consisted of 10,856,800 of "Quebec Flow-Through Units" (each, a "QFT Unit") at a price of $0.125 per QFT Unit and 1,916,856 of "National Flow-Through Units" (each, a "NFT Unit") at a price of $0.115 per NFT Unit. Each QFT Unit and NFT Unit consists of one "flow-through" common share of the Company and one half of one (1/2) non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.18 for a period of 18 months from the completion of the Private Placement.

The Company paid the Agent a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised on portions of the Private Placement. In addition, the Agent received compensation options entitling the Agent to 274,669 common shares with an exercise price equal to $0.18 per compensation option. Each compensation option entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company and will be exercisable for a period of 18 months from the completion of the Private Placement. In addition, the Company paid certain arm's length finders an aggregate of $61,800 in fees and issued certain arm's length finders an aggregate of 494,400 compensation options.

The proceeds from the sale of the QFT Units and NFT Units will be used principally for exploration and drilling on its Cadillac Break property group in Val d'Or, Quebec. Focus will be on step-out drilling on its Akasaba gold-copper project on which it has had considerable success enlarging through drilling throughout recent months.

All securities are subject to a four month hold period expiring on April 19, 2013. The Private Placement is subject to the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
