These filings will allow IAMGOLD to make offerings of common shares, first preference shares, second preference shares, debt securities, warrants, subscription receipts or any combination thereof of up to US$1 billion during the next 25 months in Canada (except for in the Province of Quebec) and in the United States. IAMGOLD is a mid-tier mining company with four operating gold mines on three continents.

IAMGOLD was advised by a team of Fasken Martineau lawyers that included John Turner, Alex Nikolic and Justine Connors.
