TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 22, 2016) -

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) ("AZX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its previously announced private placement from $4,000,000 to $5,115,258 (the "Private Placement") due to investor demand. Please refer to the Company's news releases of May 30, 2016 and June 13, 2016. The Company also announces that it has closed a second tranche of the Private Placement for gross proceeds of $3,121,074.

"We are grateful for the confidence shown in Alexandria Minerals as demonstrated by the oversubscription of this private placement," stated Eric Owens, President and CEO of Alexandria Minerals. "And we are delighted that Agnico Eagle is maintaining its interest in Alexandria by participating in this financing."

The second tranche of the Private Placement consists of 29,862,750 Quebec flow-through units ("Quebec FT Units") at a price of $0.07 per unit, for $2,090,392.50 and 17,178,025 non-flow-through units ("Units") at a price of $0.06 per unit, for $1,030,681.50.

Each Quebec FT Unit is comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Unit is comprised of one non-flow-through common share and one-half of one Warrant. Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder, on exercise, to acquire one common share at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of three years. All securities issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws.

In addition, finder's fees were paid to Medalist Capital Ltd. and Canaccord Genuity Corp. in amounts of up to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Private Placement and 6% finder's warrants, with each such warrant exercisable to acquire one common share at a price of $0.06 for 3 years. The Private Placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The proceeds from these transactions will be used for exploration on the company's Airport property and general corporate purposes.
