Alamos Gold Declares Semi-Annual Dividend

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 15, 2015) -

All amounts are in United States dollars, unless otherwise stated.

Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX:AGI)(NYSE:AGI) ("Alamos" or the "Company") today announced that the Company's Board of Directors has declared a semi-annual dividend of US$0.01 per common share. This represents the Company's 12th consecutive semi-annual dividend and once again demonstrates its commitment to returning value to shareholders.

The current dividend represents a decrease from the previous semi-annual dividend of US$0.03 per share reflecting both the weak gold price environment and our focus on reinvesting capital into growing production and reducing costs at both our Young-Davidson and Mulatos mines. This includes completing the ramp up of underground mining at Young-Davidson and developing the higher grade satellite deposits at Mulatos, both of which we expect will drive strong free cash flow growth in the coming years.

The dividend is payable on November 16, 2015 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 30, 2015. This dividend qualifies as an "eligible dividend" for Canadian income tax purposes.
