As you know, since March 23rd, our Nunavut mines have been operating in a reduced activity mode following a decision to send our Nunavummiut employees home on March 19th as a measure to help protect them and their communities. All preventive measures implemented in the past weeks will be maintained such as our strict protocol to avoid contact between employees and Nunavut communities to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We want to inform you that for our employees, whose work remains suspended after June 20th, including all our Nunavummiut employees, we are extending the 75% base salary compensation package by an additional 3 weeks, until July 11th 2020, after which the current compensation package will be reevaluated.

This is a rapidly evolving situation which we are monitoring very closely on an ongoing basis to respond promptly to changing conditions. We will continue to keep you informed on a regular basis.
