VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 16, 2013) -ALIX RESOURCES CORP. ("Alix" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AIX)(FRANKFURT:37N) is pleased to announce it has signed the definitive agreement to acquire the 220 acre Homestake (Arizona) - Santa Maria lode gold property located in Yavapai County, Arizona following up on the previously announced signing of an LOI (see news release, December 27th, 2012).

The highly prospective Santa Maria property adjoins the previously announced Golden Granite acquisition and is located about 112 kilometers (70 miles) northwest from Phoenix along highway 93 (see news release, November 5th, 2012).
The Golden Granite Project now includes both the historic Big Stick Mine with high-grade quartz veins reporting historic grades of 13 g/t Au (0.4 oz/ton) over one meter widths (see news release, November 5th, 2012), and the Santa Maria - Homestake Mine, which was developed as recently as the mid-1980's with gold grades of 3.5-13 g/t (0.1-0.38 oz/ton) (see news release, January 3, 2013).
The site visit by geology and mining specialists to the Golden Granite - Santa Maria Mine project (see news release, January 10th, 2013) is still under-way and the Company looks forward to reporting progress in the near future.
