TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Oct. 12, 2017) – Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX:AGI) (NYSE:AGI) (“Alamos” or the “Company”) today reported record third quarter 2017 gold production of 107,000 ounces. Quarterly revenues totaled $129 million from the sale of 100,551 ounces of gold at an average realized price of $1,281 per ounce.
“Operationally we delivered a strong third quarter with record production and significant milestones achieved at both our key operations. This included the completion of the MCM waste pass at Young- Davidson, contributing to higher underground mining rates in September, and initial production from our La Yaqui mine in the Mulatos district.
