Next Steps

Alexandria plans to continue processing the 2,340 samples of drill core currently being assayed at laboratories from the 2018 winter drilling campaign at the Bulldog Zone and Centremaque as well as holes from the western extensions of Orenada Zone 4.  Planning is underway for a 2,500 m drill program on its Centremaque property.  Lastly the receiving of the entire assays on the new Bulldog gold discovery will lead to a follow-up and extension drilling program during the winter or spring 2019.

By way of ordinary resolution, the number of directors was fixed at six.  Each of the incumbent nominees proposed by management was elected as a director with shareholder support exceeding 80% of the proxies received by management.

  4. authorization to proxyholders to vote in their discretion on any amendment to any of the resolutions;

Special Resolution
