Resolute Mining has released a business update on its activities in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Managing director and CEO John Welborn said in a statement:
“The safety of our people is and will always be a Resolute priority. We do not have any cases of Covid-19 among our workforce in Australia and Africa and are implementing processes to ensure we limit the risks of infection. All non-essential travel has been suspended, both domestically and internationally, and we are following World Health Organisation guidelines for isolation and mitigation. Strict hygiene measures and social distancing protocols have been implemented at all sites and Company locations. Personnel at our corporate offices in Perth and London are working remotely. At Syama and Mako, we are limiting the numbers of people working while maintaining full production.
“The challenges presented by Covid-19 continue to change on a daily basis. We are working closely with our employees, contractors and stakeholders, including our host governments, to safeguard our operations. The commitment of our people to maintain production is commendable and consistent with how Resolute responds to challenges. We are well supported by our logistics partners and remain confident in our key supply chains including fuel, food and product shipment. Further operational changes will be made where necessary in response to the global pandemic. We will remain Resolute, and are focused on keeping our people safe, and wherever possible keeping our mills running to produce gold”.
