: | Toronto Stock Exchange: AXR | NYSE MKT: AXU


Alexco owns 100% of the historic Keno Hill Silver District, located in Canada's Yukon Territory. The Bellekeno silver mine, one of the world's highest-grade silver mines with a production grade of up to 1,000 grams per tonne, commenced commercial production at the beginning of calendar year 2011 and was Canada's only operating primary silver mine from 2011 to 2013. Alexco recently announced an interim suspension of operations at Bellekeno in order to decrease costs and reposition the District for long-term, sustainable operations. Alexco is rapidly exploring other promising high-grade silver prospects on its other District properties. Two more mines are already well into development, and the recent discovery of the second largest deposit ever in the District – the Flame & Moth - point to the prolific and prospective nature of Keno Hill. Alexco’s goal is to identify 100 million ounces of silver resources in this prospective District. Through its Alexco Environmental Group (AEG), a rapidly growing and profitable environmental services business, Alexco holds the contract to remediate environmental impacts from past mining in the Keno Hill District, in partnership with the Canadian government and the First Nations. This unique business model allowed Alexco to obtain the mineral and mining rights to the entire Keno Hill area and identify the best prospects for future production, while simultaneously getting paid to responsibly manage the reclamation of this historical mining District. AEG supplies mine-related environmental services to government and industry clients in Canada, the U.S. and elsewhere through North and South America and overseas. Alexco has a strong conviction in the tremendous exploration potential of the Keno Hill Silver District, no financial debt, and a unique business model utilizing both its environmental and mining expertise.
