TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 23, 2013) - Alamos Gold Inc. ("Alamos") (News - Market indicators)(NYSE:AGI) and Orsa Ventures Corp. ("Orsa") (TSX VENTURE:ORN) are pleased to announce that they have entered into a definitive agreement (the "Agreement") pursuant to which Alamos has agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Orsa by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). 

Orsa is a junior exploration company focused on advancing its precious metal properties located in the Western United States. Upon closing, Alamos will assume ownership of Orsa's right to earn a 100% interest in the Quartz Mountain Property in Oregon as well as other assets in Oregon and Nevada. The Quartz Mountain Property is located on the northern extension of the prolific Basin and Range Province of Nevada and hosts an inferred resource of 2.85 million ounces of gold, grading 0.80 g/t.1

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, Orsa shareholders will receive C$0.10 in cash for each common share of Orsa held. The transaction values Orsa's equity at approximately C$3.5 million on a fully diluted in-the-money basis.

"Alamos is pleased to announce this transaction with Orsa" commented Mr. John A. McCluskey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alamos. "This is aligned with our strategy of adding low cost quality ounces to our pipeline, with significant potential upside. The established resource and location in the prolific Basin and Range Province of Nevada makes this a compelling, low risk opportunity for us."

"This transaction represents a premium to the current share price for Orsa shareholders in what has been a challenging and difficult market with volatile metal prices." Stated Linda Thorstad, President and Chief Executive Officer.

The board of directors of Orsa has unanimously approved the transaction and will recommend that Orsa shareholders vote in favour of the transaction. Each senior officer and each member of the board of directors of Orsa has entered into voting and support agreements with Alamos pursuant to which each has agreed to vote in favour of the transaction.

The terms and conditions of the Agreement will be disclosed in more detail in the Orsa management information circular which is expected to be filed and mailed to Orsa shareholders in the third quarter of 2013. Completion of the transaction is subject to customary conditions, including court approvals, a favourable vote of at least 66 2/3% of the holders of Orsa common shares voted at a special meeting of shareholders, and the receipt of all necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals. 

Torys LLP is acting as legal counsel to Alamos.
