Start of Caijiaying Mine Operations


Covid-19 Outbreak China


18th March 2022


Griffin Mining Limited ("Griffin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that underground operations have now recommenced at the Caijiaying Mine and that the mill facilities are scheduled to recommence processing ore on 25th March 2022.


As has been reported in the international press, increased cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus have been recorded in certain parts of China, including Jilin Province in north-east China. The Company's management , contractors and other stakeholders are working closely with the local County Government to ensure continuing Covid safe operating and logistical procedures. To date, essential supplies such as explosives and mill materials have not been affected. Nevertheless, the Company continues to liaise with all relevant parties to ensure total compliance with continuing evolving regulations, particularly should the infection rate increase further.


Chairman Mladen Ninkov commented, "I am grateful to our staff, contractors and government officials for managing the necessary approvals to restart the Caijiaying operations on time and so efficiently. As you would expect, we remain vigilant with the reported increase in Covid-19 cases but feel assured by the effective handling of the current situation by all the relevant Chinese authorities."
