Peter Legein joins Alexandria as Vice President Exploration

TORONTO, Jan. 13 /CNW/ - Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX-V: AZX; Frankfurt: A9D) is pleased to announce that it has hired Mr. Peter Legein, PGeo., a seasoned exploration geologist, as Vice-President, Exploration, for the Company.

Peter brings more than 25 years experience exploring for base and precious metals deposits globally, with particular emphasis in Eastern Canada and the Abitibi during his 20 years at BHP Minerals Canada. He has managed all aspects of exploration programs, and he was responsible for the discovery of the Caber Cu-Zn massive sulfide deposit in Quebec, as well as new base metal and gold discoveries elsewhere in Quebec and in Atlantic Canada. The Caber discovery led to the Quebec Prospector of the Year Award, which he and his group received in 1994.

Most recently Peter worked for Quantec Geoscience, where he advised mineral exploration clients on the use of the Titan 24 Induced Polarization-Magnetotelluric system. Peter holds a BSc in Geology from Concordia University and an MBA from Royal Roads University.

Eric Owens, President of Alexandria, said: "This is an excellent step forward as we prepare for our expected increase in activities this year, and continues the ongoing corporate expansion the Company began during 2010. Peter's geological knowledge, management and industry experience, will add considerable depth to our team."

Separately, the Company has granted an aggregate of 350,000 incentive stock options exercisable at a price of $0.195 for a period of 3 years to consultants of the Company.
