Minera Alamos Strengthens Mine Operations Team in Advance of Construction Decision at Santana Gold Project
May 23, 2019

Minera Alamos Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MAI) (the "Company" or "Minera Alamos") is pleased to announce the appointment of Carolina Salas as Vice President – Technical Services. Ms. Salas, who has worked with the Company’s senior management group at previous Mexican gold operations, will oversee final preparations related to the construction of commercial scale gold production facilities at the Santana Project (“Santana”) in Sonora. Her addition will add further project development and operations expertise to an already strong in-country team with a proven track record successfully developing low capex gold projects.

“We are excited to welcome Carolina back to our team,” said Darren Koningen, CEO of Minera Alamos. “Her broad project experience at all stages of project advancement from initial process development through construction and into final operations will prove invaluable as we make our final plans to move the Company’s Santana and La Fortuna gold projects into commercial production. Over the early part of this year as the Company awaits some final project permit documentation we have been actively involved with making final construction preparations. In addition, the next phase of exploration plans are now complete and we are excited to demonstrate the team’s belief in the scale of overall mineralization at Santana throughout the remainder of the year. The ability to bring onboard someone with the experience and capabilities of Carolina to assist with our efforts is a huge opportunity for the Company and further confirmation of the potential for Minera’s existing asset base to deliver significant organic production growth in the years ahead.”

Carolina Salas has a Master’s Degree in Metallurgical Science from the University of Sonora. She is currently based in Hermosillo, Sonora but will be dividing her time as required between the Company’s 100%-owned projects in Sonora and Durango. Ms. Salas brings almost 15 years of mining industry experience in increasingly senior engineering and management roles. Immediately prior to joining Minera Alamos she was a senior account manager in Mexico for Outotec, one of the world’s largest mining process equipment suppliers and focussed primarily on gold and copper projects. Prior to that her experience included roles at production operations with Minera Columbia de Mexico and Peñoles. As Process Manager at the Lluvia de Oro gold heap leach project in Sonora, Mexico Ms. Salas was responsible for the effective oversight of all gold processing and recovery facilities as well metallurgical testwork programs and the design/construction of new processing systems.

About Minera Alamos:

Minera Alamos is an advanced-stage exploration and development company with a growing portfolio of high-quality Mexican assets, including the La Fortuna open-pit gold project in Durango with positive PEA completed, the Santana open-pit heap-leach development project in Sonora with test mining and processing completed and the Guadalupe de Los Reyes open-pit gold-silver project in Sinaloa where the Company has exposure through the planned agreement with ePower Metals to assign the current option agreement in return for a significant equity stake in the ePower. The Company is awaiting the pending approval of permit applications related to the commercial production of gold at both the Santana and Fortuna projects.

The Company’s strategy is to develop low capex assets while expanding the project resources and pursue complementary strategic acquisitions.
