Eldorado Gold Corporation (“Eldorado” or “the Company”) announces the restart of operations at Lamaque as a result of the Quebec government’s confirmation that mines in the Province are allowed to resume operations.

Effective April 15, 2020, the Company will begin to ramp up Lamaque.  The Company has safety protocols in place to address COVID-19 at all its sites, including Lamaque, such as temperature screening, compliance with additional hygiene measures and task observation to ensure that all work is performed respecting physical distancing and the use of appropriate personal protective equipment.  The Company also has isolation procedures in place should an employee fall ill while at work.  All personnel have been trained in these updated protocols.

Operations at Lamaque were moved to care and maintenance on March 23rd, 2020 to comply with the Quebec provincial government-mandated restrictions to address the COVID-19 situation in the province.

George Burns, President and CEO said, “We are pleased to resume operations at Lamaque.  Keeping our people safe is our priority each and every day. With the safety measures we have put in place at all our sites, we are confident that we can adapt our business and continue to create long term value for our stakeholders.”
