IAMGOLD recalls Westwood Mine Employees

Apr 22, 2021

IAMGOLD Corporation has started a staged recall of employees back to its Westwood Mine in Quebec. Activities are focused on training and rehabilitation work. The company is expecting to make a decision in the second quarter with respect to a possible targeted safe restart in the second half of the year which would commence with the East Zone and progress to the other zones in a staged manner.

As reported in IAMGOLD's fourth quarter and full year 2020 results news release (dated February 17, 2021), mill feed this year is being sourced from the Grand Duc satellite open pit nearby the Westwood mill complex and is expected to be supplemented by underground material from the Westwood mine. A further update on Westwood will be provided along with IAMGOLD's first quarter operating and financial results, to be released on May 3, 2021. Guidance for Westwood production is maintained at 45,000 to 65,000 ounces in 2021.
