Mining PRs and the Ottotrans™, part 78

Good morning to you, dear and appreciated reader of IKN. We are pleased to offer you part seventy-eight in our occasional series that tries, in its meek way, to make sense of the news releases offered to the world by mining companies. Today, our example comes from Alamos Gold (AGI.to) (AGI).

This is what they wrote

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Nov 19, 2013) –
All amounts are in United States dollars, unless otherwise stated.

Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX:AGI)(NYSE:AGI) (“Alamos” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the launch of its new corporate website.

The
launch of our new website reflects the growth Alamos is experiencing as
a company. Our Mulatos mine continues to perform well, we are advancing
our development projects in Turkey and with the recent acquisitions of
the Esperanza Gold Project in Mexico, and Quartz Mountain Property in
Oregon, we have enhanced our peer leading growth profile.

With
approximately $420 million in cash, no debt and strong ongoing cash
flow generation we remain in an enviable position in the industry with a
peer leading, fully funded growth profile, and the balance sheet
strength and management depth to pursue additional growth opportunities.
Please take the time to navigate through our new website at www.alamosgold.com.

 And this is what it means

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Nov 19, 2013) –
All amounts are in United States dollars, unless otherwise stated.

Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX:AGI)(NYSE:AGI) (“Alamos” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the launch of its new corporate website.

The
launch of our new website reflects the lack of imagination Alamos is experiencing as
a company. Our website cost thirty grand to renew and although it doesn’t contain any new information, the corporate photos have been updated and there’s a 50% increase of those shots of cute smiling children, which always go down well. More importantly, we want to underscore how our corporate culture is stuck firmly in the past by making a big song and dance about a website upgrade, issuing this waste of space NR and patting ourselves on the back for the type of move that no company worth its salt in 2013 will ever make a fuss over. We are aware that the mining industry has no clue about tech or investor relations trends and we’re proud to celebrate that fact by releasing non-news via Marketwired, Stockwatch and CNW.

With
approximately $420 million in cash, no debt and strong ongoing cash
flow generation we have more money than common sense and will continue to let the morons in our IR department waste it in any way they see fit. Please take the time to navigate through our new website at www.alamosgold.com.
