As previously disclosed, Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX: AGI) (NYSE: AGI) has purchased securities under the Offering to obtain a 9.9% interest in the Company.


Pursuant to the Offering, the Company issued (i) 15,818,420 common shares of the Company that will qualify as “flow-through shares” for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) at a price of C$0.2907 per share for gross proceeds of C$4,598,415 and (ii) 6,880,045 non-flow-through common shares of the Company at a price of C$0.19 per share for gross proceeds of C$1,307,209.


“The Company is pleased to close the oversubscribed financing and welcomes Alamos as a strategic investor,” stated Brian Skanderbeg, President and CEO of GFG. “With a strong treasury and multiple highly prospective targets, we are excited to resume our 2020 exploration programs to demonstrate the potential for the Pen Gold Project to host multiple gold deposits next to the world-class Timmins gold camp.”


John A. McCluskey, President and CEO of Alamos Gold Inc. commented, “We are excited to be a strategic investor in GFG as they explore for new gold deposits in one of Canada’s richest and most prospective gold trends. GFG has strong geological capability and has assembled a large and impressive land package. We believe they have the right approach to exploration and we wish them well as the 2020 field season gets underway.”


Corporate Update


The Company expects to receive the final assay results from the remaining six drill holes from the 2020 Phase 1 drill program in the coming weeks. Following the receipt and release of the assay results, the Company will provide a detailed and expanded 2020 exploration plan for the Pen and Dore gold projects.
