VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 11, 2012) - ALIX RESOURCES CORP. ("Alix" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AIX)(FRANKFURT:37N) announces it has signed a letter of intent on April 5, 2012 with Goldspan Resources Inc. which will allow Goldspan to obtain up to a sixty (60%) ownership interest in the 24,500 acre Golden Zone property in Alaska. The LOI requires Goldspan to spend $3.5 million over the next three years for exploration and development, make cash payments to Alix of $1,000,000, assume the balance of cash and share payments required by Alix to the Owners for full exercise of the Original Option, plus pay an estimated $250,000 for ongoing maintenance fees. The property is located along the south flank of the Alaska Range 15 miles west of the Parks Highway, approximately halfway between the cities of Anchorage and Fairbanks. This transaction is subject to TSX Venture approval.
Alix has an existing option (the "Original Option") on the property which was entered into in September of 2010 with Hidefield Gold Inc. and Mines Trust Company (collectively the "Owners") whereby Alix can earn up to 70% interest in the Golden Zone property.
Alix and Goldspan will enter into a Definitive Option Agreement which, inter alia, will require Goldspan and Alix to obtain the Owners' consent to the assignment of the Alix Option to allow for a direct transfer to Goldspan Resources, Inc.
Once Goldspan has exercised its option, Goldspan and Alix will own 60% and 10%, respectively.
"Doing this deal with Goldspan allows the further advancement of the Golden Zone project enabling Alix to focus its efforts on its Moneyrock project in Alaska" states Alix president Mike England. "Sumitomo's neighboring "Pogo Mine" has been the site of extensive exploration on top of production and we are very excited to concentrate now on our significant claims in the area."
