Alamos Gold has concluded a private placement that helped it garner C$50m ($36.8m) by acquiring 13.8% of Argonaut Gold’s common shares.

In the placement, Alamos subscribed to 174,825,175 shares at C$0.286 each. 

This move is part of a larger agreement under which Alamos will acquire all issued and outstanding shares of Argonaut.

The $325m takeover was announced last month.

Argonaut plans to use the net proceeds from the placement to meet its immediate liquidity needs.

These funds will support loan facilities, operational costs and the advancement of the Magino Gold mine, along with general working capital requirements.
