Alpha Reports Update on Legal Proceedings

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALPHA EXPLORATION INC. ("AEX" or the "Company") (TSX-V:AEX) announces that on October 7, 2014, the BC Supreme Court issued a decision concerning the Company's application for an injunction against NexGen Energy Ltd. and the Company's former VP Exploration, Garrett Ainsworth (collectively, the "Defendants"). The judge held that the matter was not suitable for disposition through a summary trial on affidavit evidence alone and therefore the merits of the dispute must be dealt with at a full trial. As a result, the Company's application for an injunction was dismissed on procedural grounds. The Company is disappointed with the outcome. Costs of the injunction application (approximately $3,000) were awarded to the Defendants. Alpha will consider pursuing a decision by full trial in accordance with the outcome at Court yesterday, and will disclose any further developments in due course.
