KIRKLAND LAKE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 9, 2015) - NORDEX EXPLOSIVES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:NXX) ("Nordex" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announced the signing of a two year supply agreement ("Agreement") with Alamos Gold Inc.

Under the terms of the Agreement, a minimum of 90% of all explosive product requirements will be purchased from Nordex.

Nordex is proud to be the only Canadian manufacturer of explosives and we are very privileged to have our roots in Northern Ontario. The support of mining companies like Alamos Gold is important to the viability of local communities and provides the means for the existence of manufacturers like Nordex to contribute to the economic diversification and growth of regions where we operate. We continue to identify and introduce Nordex products to new customers for potential long term supply arrangements."
