(Reuters) - Gold miner Aurizon Mines Ltd ARZ.TO said it was in talks with a number of potential buyers, after rejecting last month an unsolicited C$780 million ($785 million) offer from Alamos Gold Inc AGI.TO.
Confidentiality agreements have been reached with the potential buyers and they are conducting due diligence, Aurizon said in a statement on Friday. It did not identify the parties involved.
Aurizon adopted a poison pill on January 22 to give itself time to consider alternatives to the Alamos offer.
