Alamos Gold is a Canadian Multinational corporation Gold mining producer, headquartered in Toronto, Canada. Alamos operates three mines across North America, and has six further projects in development.
Alamos is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and is a component of the S&P/TSX Composite Index.
Alamos Gold was formed in 2003 through the merger of Alamos Minerals and National Gold.
In 2017, Alamos acquired Richmont Mines Inc. in a deal valued at $770 million US dollars.
In August 2019, protests were held outside Alamos' Kirazli Project. The protestors alleged that Alamos cut down four times the number of trees than it declared in an environmental impact report and that the use of cyanide to extract gold could contaminate the soil and waters of a nearby dam. The Turkish government rejected claims that the mine will damage the environment and denied cyanide will be used. In an interview Alamos CEO John McCluskey denied that cyanide would leak into the surrounding area and pointed out that Alamos had pre-paid for future reforestation at the site once the project is completed. McCluskey also suggested that the project had been the subject of deliberate misinformation aimed at advancing a political agenda.
In October 2019, Alamos halted construction at the Kirazli project after its mining concessions expired amidst the protests.
In July 2020, Alamos announced plans to expand its operations at the Island Gold mine.
In April 2020, a group of five armed robbers intercepted a shipment of gold and silver alloy bars that were being loaded onto a plane for transport at Alamos' Mulatos Mine, then fled in a light aircraft. The company did not disclose the amount or the value of the bars taken, but said that the loss was covered by insurance.
