China Gold International Resources Corp. Ltd. Mine Sites Experience Little to no Impact From Novel Coronavirus Thus Far
VANCOUVER, Feb. 27, 2020 - China Gold International Resources Corp. Ltd. (TSX: CGG; HKEx: 2099) (“China Gold International Resources” or the “Company”) is providing a voluntary business update in relation to the Company’s production and operations and the Novel Coronavirus (the “COVID-19”).
The Company’s Jiama mine has been operating with little to no impact on its production or operations thus far. The Jiama mine regularly monitors the health of its employees and its supply chains and is prepared to respond to any potential disruption issues, should any arise.
The employees of CSH Mine have returned to the mine site following the scheduled Chinese New Year celebration closure. CSH Mine normally experiences lower recovery rates during the first quarter of every year impacted by the harsh winter conditions and as such, performance in the first quarter of the year is usually lower as compared with other quarters in the year. The Company expects the recovery rate to normalize during the balance of 2020. The CSH mine has had little to no impact on its production or operations compared to previous years due to the COVID-19 thus far.
The Company is reminding all individuals to take care of their health and to adhere to safety procedures while conducting business operations.
The Company’s chief executive officer, Liangyou Jiang, said, “Although there currently are no employees infected at the Company’s two mines, we will be ready to respond to the possible impact COVID-19 may have on any aspects of our business and will closely monitor the health condition of our employees."
