Resolute Mining has committed $1m to support African host governments in their response efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic. Resolute’s commitments consist of direct financial assistance as well as the sourcing and supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), Covid-19 testing kits, and other medical equipment.

Resolute managing director and CEO John Welborn said: “Resolute is proud to assist Mali and Senegal in the fight against COVID-19. The challenges presented by COVID-19 continue to change daily and we must remain agile and united in our response to the pandemic.

Resolute will continue to work closely with our host governments and local communities to keep people safe and maintain our operational capacity. We recognise that the continued operation of Syama and Mako during this crisis is of vital importance to local employment, community well-being and the economies of Mali and Senegal.”
