News Releases

October 23, 2008 Vancouver, British Columbia - Alexco Resource Corp. (TSX:AXR, AMEX:AXU) (“Alexco” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has today closed the flow-through private placement previously announced on October 15, 2008. The agent exercised its $1 million over-allotment option, and accordingly a total of 3,500,000 flow-through common shares have been issued at a purchase price of $2.00 per flow-through share for total gross proceeds of $7,000,000.

Alexco plans to deploy the proceeds from the financing to continue its successful Keno Hill Silver District exploration program. Having identified a high grade silver resource at its Bellekeno property and having recently completed a silver purchase agreement with Silver Wheaton Corp. to finance the construction of the Bellekeno mine, the additional funds from this financing will ensure the continuing advance of the Company’s comprehensive district exploration program through this winter and into the summer of 2009.
