Alexco Intersects Silver Mineralization to 26 Meters True Thickness at Bermingham Including Narrower Intervals to 47.6 Ounces Per Ton Over 1.88 Meters - "Included in this release are intercepts, such as 10.36 meters (true width) of 363 grams per tonne (g/t) silver (10.6 oz/ton) that includes 1.88 meter (true width) at 1,634 g/t silver (47.65 oz/ton), which generally occur within much broader zones of anomalous geochemistry. Based on current experience in the Keno Hill area, this style of mineralization may represent a high level expression of deeper mineralization. Importantly, the currently defined mineralization at Bermingham occurs at a higher elevation in the mine stratigraphic sequence than the adjacent Hector-Calumet mine, where more than 90 million ounces of silver were historically extracted. In total, it is interpreted that the currently defined Bermingham mineralization is not only important from the perspective of near term potential resource development, but may also represent the upper part of a larger mineralized system not yet defined at depth."

We have traced the Esperanza structure on surface for almost 5 kilometres but have drilled a mere 100 metres from previous drilling so far. Mineralization is still open in all directions and lateral offsets of the current holes are planned for drilling in 2012 to determine the continuity and tenor of mineralization." More

Alexco Drills 8.9 Meters of 20.2 Ounces Per Ton Silver At Flame & Moth, Continues to Confirm and Expand Mineralization - VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire -02/14/12)- Alexco Resource Corp. (TSX: AXR.TO - News)(AMEX: AXU - News) today announced final results from the 2011 drilling program at its recently discovered Flame & Moth prospect, located immediately adjacent to Alexco's milling complex within the Keno Hill Silver District in Canada's Yukon Territory. Overall, the drilling has increased confidence in the continuity and thickness of silver mineralization at Flame & Moth, with results to date returning average grades from 16 to 21 ounces per ton silver over true widths averaging 5.5 meters within the mineralized Flame Vein structure. The structure is now traced with confidence along a 500 meter strike length to a depth of 350 meters below surface. In addition, within the thicker zones of mineralization noted below, higher grade intervals ranging from approximately 30 ounces per ton silver over 1.15 meters to more than 100 ounces per ton silver over 0.14 meters are present. The mineralization is open at depth and down-plunge. Mineralization also remains open up-plunge between 150 meters depth and the bedrock surface present beneath extensive alluvial gravels.

Alexco President and Chief Executive Officer Clynt Nauman said, "Clearly we have a significant discovery at Flame & Moth, with a continuity, style and thickness which may be unique for Keno Hill. At this juncture we have two objectives at Flame & Moth, firstly to calculate an initial silver resource which should be available in the second quarter 2012, and secondly to accelerate and expand our 2012 drilling program to both in-fill and extend mineralization such that by the end of 2012, the ranking of Flame & Moth within the mine development pipeline at Keno Hill can be better assessed."
