TORONTO, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD" or the

$0.125 per common share that will be paid on July 12, 2013, to shareholders of

a 4% dividend yield based on the average closing value of the Company's common

in the gold sector and shareholders across the sector have seen significant
share price declines. At IAMGOLD, we are focused on being disciplined about
our capital allocation and are well advanced on our program to reduce costs,
which allows us to maintain our dividend payout rate. Today's dividend
declaration reflects our liquidity and the confidence we have in future cash
flows for the Company."

For purposes of subsection 89(14) of the Income Tax Act, the Company
designates all dividends payable on July 12, 2013, to be eligible dividends.
