The company said Friday that it had disposed of 3,360,000 shares of Prime for gross proceeds of C$1,213,000.
Proceeds from the sale will go towards the acquisition of a new crushing system and not impact available working capital for the ongoing construction of the Santana gold mine.

Despite the shares dump, Minera Alamos said it remains a “significant and supportive” shareholder of Prime Mining, with nearly 6.1 million shares still under ownership by the mining company.
In addition, Minera owns 3,350,000 warrants of Prime Mining that, if exercised, would increase Minera's ownership to 15.1%, on a partially diluted basis, it told shareholders.
The firm said that at the moment, it does not intend to change its holdings in Prime Mining.
