TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 10, 2012) - ALEXIS MINERALS CORPORATION (News - Market indicators)(OTCQX:AXSMF) ("Alexis" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that in the first quarter of 2012, the Company produced approximately 5,500 ounces of gold including about 700 ounces of custom milling from its Lac Herbin Mine in Val D'Or, Quebec.

The level of production that is being experienced at Lac Herbin is in line with Alexis' previous guidance for 2012 production of 18,500 to 20,500 ounces for the year. Cash cost information will be released as part of the first quarter financial results expected in May.

Progress of the Lac Herbin Turnaround Plan

Since the introduction of the Lac Herbin Turnaround Plan (see press release issued on June 8, 2011), production levels and operating cash costs have been stabilizing to move closer to 2012 production expectations from the Lac Herbin Mine. During the fourth quarter of 2011 recovery rates from the mill remained lower than anticipated with average recovery rates around 81%. Recoveries for the first quarter of 2012 have increased since the fourth quarter and work on improving recovery rates at the Aurbel Mill will continue to be an area of focus for the company.

François Perron, President and CEO of Alexis, commented on these recent results: "We are pleased that the turnaround plan continues to proceed on schedule. The first quarter production is inline with our guidance for the year and demonstrates that operations are now beginning to achieve their objectives. I would like to thank the team in Val d'Or for the progress made on the turnaround plan, especially for reaching the production objective while continuing to significantly improve the safety performance at the mine." 

Mineral Resource Update

Alexis expected to publish a new mineral resource estimate in the first quarter of 2012, however interruptions in compiling final results have delayed the release of this report. The Company now expects a mineral resource update to occur at the beginning of the second quarter of 2012.
