KL Gold donating $20USD million to local communities

May 6, 2020

Kirkland Lake Gold's operational success has put them in a position to make substantial donations to the communities in which it operates over the next 12 months. Just prior to the start of Q2, Kirkland Lake Gold announced plans to donate US$20 million over the next 12 months to medical, social and community organizations in the areas of Canada and Australia where the Company operates; donations to provide support to local health units and facilities, food banks, municipal services and other essential social support groups which may encounter difficulties due to slowing economies and reduced funding as a result of COVID-19.

Tony Makuch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Kirkland Lake Gold, commented: “Throughout my career, I have seen that, in times of adversity, quality people rise to the occasion. Faced with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, our team did extremely well protecting themselves and each other, while also turning in a very solid performance for the quarter. As a company, we have also risen to the occasion to support our local communities. We are donating US$20 million to assist community groups in the areas of Canada and Australia where we operate in recognition of the essential services that these groups provide and the challenges they are, or may be, faced with in obtaining funding and social assistance as a result of a slowing economic environment."
