Directors

Leadership

Corporate Governance

Alamos Gold strives to be a leader in corporate governance and ethical business conduct by maintaining best practices, transparency and accountability to our stakeholders. Our Board of Directors believes that good corporate governance practices are essential to the creation of long-term value for all of our stakeholders. The Board regularly reviews its structure, practices and composition in order to improve its overall effectiveness.

The Role of the Board of Directors

The primary responsibility of the Board is to provide governance and stewardship to the Company. Each Board member is required to exercise business judgment in a manner consistent with his or her fiduciary duties. In particular, directors are required to act honestly and in good faith, with a view to the best interests of the Company and to exercise the care, diligence and skill that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in comparable circumstances.

The Board discharges its responsibility for supervising the management of the business and affairs of the Company by delegating its day-to-day management to senior officers. The Board oversees the Company’s systems of corporate governance and financial reporting and controls to ensure that the Company reports adequate and fair financial information to shareholders and engages in ethical and legal corporate conduct. Its goal is to ensure that Alamos continues to operate as a successful business, and to optimize financial returns to increase the Company’s value over time while effectively managing any risks confronting the organization.

Our Board of Directors consists of 10 directors, of which all but one, the President and CEO, are independent from management. The Board’s gender diversity policy states that 50% of new director positions will be filled by female candidates. Since 2015, the Board has appointed three female members, bringing the balance to three women and seven men.

Committees of the Board

There are currently four standing committees of the Board: the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee, the Audit Committee, the Human Resources Committee and the Technical and Sustainability Committee. Committee members are appointed by, and comprised exclusively of, members of the Board and are currently all independent directors. The roles and responsibilities of each Committee are set out in its Board-approved written Charter. Each Committee Charter is reviewed annually by the relevant committee and the Corporate Governance Committee.

The mandates of the Committees ensure, collectively, that the Board fulfills its duties and responsibilities and that there is effective supervision and direction of management in the conduct of the affairs of the Company. The Chair of a committee is selected by the Board from among the members of the relevant committee (with the exception of the Audit Committee, which elects its own Chair annually). Each Committee Charter includes a description of the role and responsibilities of the Chair of the Committee, which include presiding over Committee meetings, reporting to the Board with respect to the activities of the Committee, and providing leadership to the Committee and assisting it in reviewing and monitoring its responsibilities as set out in its Charter.
