TORONTO, March 3, 2017 /CNW/ - IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD" or the "Company") today announced that it has commenced an offering of $500 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2025 (the "Notes").

The Notes will be offered and sold in Canada on a private placement basis pursuant to certain exemptions from applicable Canadian securities laws.
