Once again this year, to proactively deal with the unprecedented public health impact of the ongoing novel coronavirus disease outbreak (“COVID-19”), the Company is conducting a virtual meeting.
As in-person attendance at the Annual Meeting will not be permitted owing to applicable health and safety rules currently in effect, all shareholders are strongly encouraged to cast their vote in advance by submitting a completed form of proxy (or voting instruction form) using one of the means described in the Management Information Circular dated April 19, 2021 (the “Circular”), which is available on the Company’s website and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The health and safety of our employees, contractors, vendors, and consultants is the Company’s top priority. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Wesdome has adopted all public health guidelines regarding safety measures and protocols at all of its mine operations and corporate offices. In addition, our internal COVID-19 Taskforce continues to monitor developments and implement policies and programs intended to protect those who are engaged in business with the Company.
Through care and planning, to date the Company has successfully maintained operations, however there can be no assurance that this will continue despite our best efforts. Future conditions may warrant reduced or suspended production activities which could negatively impact our ability to maintain projected timelines and objectives. Consequently, the Company’s actual future production and production guidance is subject to higher levels of risk than usual. We are continuing to closely monitor the situation and will provide updates as they become available.
Wesdome Gold Mines is a 100% Canadian focused Company that has had over 30 years of continuous gold mining operations in Canada.
