Alix and Caribou Begin Mapping Interpretation and Target Selection on the Vault Property, Yukon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 1, 2011) - ALIX RESOURCES CORP. ("Alix") (TSX VENTURE:AIX)(FRANKFURT:37N) and CARIBOU COPPER RESOURCES LTD. ("Caribou")(TSX VENTURE:CKR) ('the companies') are pleased to announce that detailed mapping has identified additional mineralized outcrops on the Vault Property, located 140 kilometers northwest of Haines Junction in the Yukon. Detailed mapping has been completed over the southeastern one-third of the Vault Property by UTM Exploration, Inc. (Smithers, B.C.), on behalf of the joint venture. The detailed mapping has confirmed regional mapping completed in 2004 that identified large areas of volcanic and sedimentary rocks of the Station Creek, Hasen Creek and Nicolai Formations (Israel, S. and van Zeyl, D., 2004. Preliminary geological map of the Quill Creek area, (parts of NTS 115G/5, 6, 12), southwest Yukon (1:50,000 scale). Yukon Geological Survey, Open File 2004‐20). The present mapping program has identified outcrops within these units that are strongly silicified and lined with fine quartz and limonite veinlets containing chalcopyrite, chalcocite, malachite, and azurite. Samples from these outcrops have been submitted for assay with results expected in the coming weeks.

On the northwestern two-thirds of the property, mapping in 2004 by Israel and van Zeyl identified several outcrops of mafic intrusives emplaced within the Station Creek and Hasen Creek Formations, that are similar in position and lithology to rocks comprising the PGE-bearing Wellgreen Intrusion, located one kilometer southwest of the Vault Property and presently under economic assessment by Prophecy Platinum Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NKL). Detailed mapping and sampling of the northwestern portion of Vault will be completed in the coming weeks, with the objective of identifying targets for drilling at the end of the field season.

The original Vault property covers over 34 square kilometers and hosts numerous high gold anomalies that were the initial motivation for acquiring the property (see Alix news release, January 31st, 2011). The newly acquired 'BV' and 'BC' claims lie contiguous and to the southeast of the Vault claims. The BV claims cover a small area between Vault and the Wellgreen Project, with potentially similar geology to Wellgreen. The northern-most BC claims comprise 18.7 square kilometers and are contiguous with the Corky gold and base metal claims to the immediate southeast (see Alix news release, July 29th, 2011). The southernmost BC claim package adds an additional 39.6 square kilometers to the north of the Corky Claims, approximately six kilometers south of the Wellgreen Property.

Alix obtained the Vault and Corky properties as part of a five-property Yukon portfolio from Strategic Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SMD) in an option agreement whereby Alix can obtain 100% of the five properties by issuing 9.9% of its outstanding share capital to Strategic and making cumulative cash payments totaling $3,000,000 over a four-year period (see Alix News Release January 31, 2011). In May 2011, Caribou entered into an agreement with Alix whereby 49% interest in the five properties can be obtained by issuing 500,000 common shares and spending $600,000 on the properties over two years (see Caribou News Release May 11th, 2011). Caribou is also obligated to pay its proportionate share of the cash payments due under the agreement with Strategic Metals Ltd. on these five properties.
