TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 23, 2020 / AEX Gold Inc. ("AEX" or the "Corporation") (TSXV:AEX) is pleased to announce that it has received confirmation from the Greenlandic Covid Commission that its plan to mobilize personnel to its properties in South Greenland amid the Covid19 environment met all of the requirements of the authorities.
Since the start of the crisis in March 2020, AEX has engaged diligently with various specialists from the medical services, occupational health and safety, insurances and legal sectors as well as with the Greenlandic authorities to implement Standard Operating Procedures ("SOPs") which aim to minimize the risks of Covid19 contamination for all stakeholders, and in line with industry best practice.
The Corporation will continue to have a collaborative and proactive approach with the Greenlandic government to monitor the evolution of the crisis and has developed contingency plans to adjust for any new development in a flexible and efficient manner without materially impacting the Corporation's future plans or its assessment of the economic viability of its projects.
AEX intends to submit its Field Application documents to the Greenlandic Authorities in early July for authorization ahead of mobilizing personnel, which is expected to occur around the end of July
Eldur Olafsson, CEO of AEX Gold, comments:
"We are encouraged by the authorisation we have received from the Greenlandic Covid Commission and we look forward to welcoming back our employees and resuming the development of Nalunaq and carrying out exploration activities. We continue to work closely with the Greenland government to ensure we are following all of the guidelines in place to protect our local communities and personnel."
