"Close to a month ago, we made a transformative decision to enter into a strategic partnership with Osisko Gold Royalties," said Darren Koningen, President and CEO of Minera Alamos.

We are extremely pleased to see our growth ambitions validated by the strong level of interest we received for this financing and look forward to providing further updates on our continued progress in the coming weeks."

Minera Alamos intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for exploration and development of the Company's La Fortuna Project in Durango, Mexico, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This news release may contain forward looking information and Minera Alamos cautions readers that forward looking information is based on certain assumptions and risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations of Minera Alamos included in this news release. This news release includes certain "forward-looking statements", which often, but not always, can be identified by the use of words such as "believes", "anticipates", "expects", "estimates", "may", "could", "would", "will", or "plan". These statements are based on information currently available to Minera Alamos and Minera Alamos provides no assurance that actual results will meet management's expectations. Forwardlooking statements include estimates and statements with respect to Minera Alamos' future plans, objectives or goals, to the effect that Minera Alamos or management expects a stated condition or result to occur, including completion of the Brokered Offering, as well as funding and exercise of royalty options contemplated under the Investment Agreement with Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd, on the terms provided for therein or at all, the expected timing for release of an updated resource and reserve estimate and a preliminary economic assessment on Fortuna and whether or not the assessment will conclude that mineral production is feasible on a technical or economic basis, and the ability to successfully develop other mineral exploration properties now or in the future. Since forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results relating to, among other things, closing, results of exploration, the economics of processing methods, project development, reclamation and capital costs of Minera Alamos' mineral properties, the ability to complete a preliminary economic assessment which supports the technical and economic viability of mineral production, Minera Alamos' financial condition and prospects, could differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statements for many reasons such as: failure to complete the Brokered Offering on the terms as announced or at all; the absence of funding resulting from a determination by Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd not to exercise the royalty options contemplated under the Investment Agreement on the terms provided for therein or at all; an inability to finance and/or complete an updated resource and reserve estimate and a preliminary economic assessment which supports the technical and economic viability of mineral production; changes in general economic conditions and conditions in the financial markets; changes in demand and prices for minerals; litigation, legislative, environmental and other judicial, regulatory, political and competitive developments; technological and operational difficulties encountered in connection with Minera Alamos' activities; and other matters discussed in this news release and in filings made with securities regulators. This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect any of Minera Alamos' forward-looking statements. These and other factors should be considered carefully and readers should not place undue reliance on Minera Alamos' forward-looking statements.
