For Immediate Release                                                                                           Press Release

 

 


Alexis Pours over 5,000 Ounces of Gold to Become

the World's Newest Gold Producer

 

July 16, 2008 - ALEXIS MINERALS CORPORATION [TSX: AMC] is pleased to advise that it has entered the early stages of gold production, becoming the world's newest gold producer.  While the global supply of gold projects is declining, Alexis has now discovered a new gold deposit, advanced pre-production mine development and is now producing gold, generating revenue from its first mine project at Lac Herbin, Val d'Or, Qu?bec.

 

Alexis recently completed its first custom milling production campaign on the Lac Herbin deposit. A total of 5,047 ounces of gold were recovered with the mill recording higher than anticipated grades.  Milling of gold ores from its 100% owned Lac Herbin gold project in Val d'Or, Qu?bec commenced on June 16, 2008 and was completed on July 09, 2008. A total of 26,798 (dry) tonnes was processed, well in excess of the proposed 20,000 tonne program (See Press Release: June 4th, 2008). Very high mill recovery rates of 97.9% were maintained throughout the campaign. Reconciliation of the results from this campaign to ores and ore types separated into six original stockpiles is ongoing. Five of the six stockpiles returned from 10% to 40% higher milled grades than the predicted mine grades.  This gold deposit has now created a revenue stream for Alexis, as 1,625 ounces of gold was sold on July 11th at C$970.00/oz. Au.

 

The Lac Herbin gold mine is a primary focus for Alexis and a recent thorough review and reassessment has resulted in the following:

?         Commercial production will be achieved in October, 2008 due to a delay in ramp development caused by transition from mining contractor to company workforce and flooding of the main ramp in March. (Commercial production is defined as three months of consecutive production at a rate of 60% of the planned production rate)

?         Full production is still expected during Q4-2008.

?         Three additional gold milling campaigns are scheduled during 2008.

?         Production targets: 17,000 oz. Au in 2008 with an annual run-rate of 36,000 ounces in 2009 and subsequent years.

?         The economics and budget have been revised in light of ongoing delineation and exploration drilling, delineation and mining development on levels and sublevels within ore, and due to general industry cost increases.  The life of mine cash operating costs have been revised to $489/oz.Au from $470/oz.Au in feasibility (See Press Release: February 21, 2008), with a resulting EBITDA of $1,000,000 per month (using C$850 per oz.Au and 1:1 US$/CDN$ exchange rate).

?         The recently concluded milling campaign indicates that grades calculated for the stockpiles during mining again underestimate the actual milled grades. Prior bulk sampling indicated similar behavior (See Press Releases: January 16, 2007 and January 29, 2008).

?         Five underground Diamond drills continue delineation and exploration of the deposit.

 

Alexis Minerals continues to implement its' short to medium term' strategy focused on mine development and production from Lac Herbin, in order to generate cash flows to support an ongoing and longer term strategy focused on regional exploration. Potential for exploration, development and additional production from the Lac Pelletier Deposit in Rouyn-Noranda is currently the focus of ongoing pre-feasibility studies. Regional exploration of the two large property packages in the Val d'Or and Rouyn-Noranda mining camps is continuing in the search for world class gold and base metal deposits.

Mr. Patrick Sevigny, Eng., Project Manager, who is a Qualified Person as defined under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the contents of this press release.
