News Releases

February 5, 2008 Vancouver, British Columbia – Alexco Resource Corp. (TSX:AXR, AMEX:AXU) (“Alexco” or the “Company”) advises that as a result of a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission, Alexco is issuing this news release to clarify certain disclosure relating to the Bellekeno and Onek properties made in recent presentation materials.

In a presentation made January 30, 2008 at the Mineral Exploration Round-Up in Vancouver, certain mining and economic assumptions and estimates were included relating to a preliminary assessment the Company is currently preparing in respect of its Bellekeno property located in the Keno Hill district of Yukon Territory. These assumptions and estimates, which were internally prepared, were not intended for public disclosure and were not supported by a National Instrument 43-101 technical report. They may not be reflective of the actual assumptions and estimates on which a preliminary assessment would be based should one be completed, and there is no certainty that such assumptions and estimates could be realized. The information as presented was not, and was not intended to be, an economic analysis or preliminary assessment and should not be interpreted as such. The Company retracts the disclosure in its entirety and advises that the disclosure should not be relied upon in any way.

The Company has also revised a December 2007 corporate presentation posted on its web site to retract information on two slides regarding order of magnitude estimates of per-ton gross metal value and net smelter returns and possible operating and production scenario parameters pertaining to the Bellekeno property.

Alexco is currently preparing a preliminary assessment in respect of its Bellekeno property. The Company will issue a news release disclosing the results upon its completion, and will file an independently-prepared technical report in support of the preliminary assessment in compliance with National Instrument 43-101.
