Santiago, Chile – March 6, 2023 – Shareholder Notification
AURYN Mining Corporation is proud to announce that it has been selected by Chilean Mining Authorities to conduct a training workshop on the use and application of safer materials and new explosive devices for mining producers. The decision was made following a visit by Mr. Carlos Hunt, SEREMI de Minería-Region Metropolitana, and Mr. Christian Orellana, Central Regional Director for SERNAGEOMIN, to AURYN’s La Fortuna de Lampa mine in the Altos de Lipangue Mining District. The mining authorities expressed their satisfaction with AURYN’s operation and its high level of compliance with ESG standards.
“It’s impressive to see the technical and financial effort in this mining project, as well as the high level of compliance with applicable ESG regulations,” said Mr. Hunt, SEREMI de Minería-Region Metropolitana.
“We view this as a valuable opportunity to share our extensive expertise and knowledge with the mining community,” expressed Enrique Lopez Albujar, AURYN’s General Operations & Logistics Manager. “Our mission is to advocate responsible mining practices and create a culture of conscientious and efficient mining for future professionals in Chile.”
The training workshop will be attended by mining producers, relevant mining associations, and authorities, including the Minister of Mining, Marcela Hernando. It will cover a range of topics, including the safe handling and use of explosives, risk assessment and management, and the latest advancements in mining technology.
The training workshop is part of a broader effort by AURYN to promote responsible mining practices and develop a culture of sustainability in the mining industry. The company already has compliance software, SIGAL (Sistema Integrado de Gestión Ambiental Legal), in place to maintain the highest compliance and ESG standards in the mining industry. AURYN’s Mining Chief Officer, Hector Ledesma, and Vice-President and Legal Manager, Italo Volante, have all contributed to AURYN’s success.
“We are thrilled to work closely with the government and with the university to generate a responsible, conscientious, and efficient mining culture for future professionals in Chile,” said Maurizio Cordova, AURYN’s CEO and Chairman of the Board.
The training workshop is scheduled to take place in Santiago later this month. AURYN, SEREMI de Minería-Region Metropolitana, and SERNAGEOMIN will conduct additional training sessions jointly.
