This structure ensures that IAMGOLD’s vision of Zero Harm receives appropriate guidance and resources. For our commitment to communities, we like to think beyond Zero Harm, with the objective being to ensure that communities are better off because we are there.

Disclosure Required 2015 Rosebel 2015 Essakane 2015 Westwood
Identify where ASM takes place on, or adjacent to, the Company’s sites, or where it presents risks to the Company’s operations. ASM takes place in and around the Royal Hill pit, Rosebel pit and Mayo pit. Mining has spread to new sites (Falagountou and North Zone), around which artisanal miners are present. None
Report the number of ASM operations that take place on, or adjacent to, the site and describe the situation. There are six fixed groups of ASM around the Royal Hill pit and the power line area. There is also a group of 200 individuals that enter the pits illegally to retrieve ore. 1,000 to 3,000 None
What is the nature of the risks? Answer yes or no to the topics below and provide a brief description:
i. Environmental risks (e.g., mercury and cyanide pollution, dumping of tailings into river systems) Yes, ASM’s use of mercury on the concession poses a risk to the environment since mercury accumulates in the surface water. The disruption of natural drainage can cause areas to flood. Yes, deterioration of biodiversity and water quality, risk for animals N/A
ii. Risk with access and with security teams Yes, ASMs tend to work in areas that are remote and difficult to access, which poses risks for IAMGOLD security personnel accessing these areas. ASM interactions with SSM security personnel can be provocative and there is risk of inciting altercations. Yes, risk of falling into a hole, access issues, risk of drifts collapsing on artisanal miners N/A
iii. Hazard risks to health Yes, exposure to mercury that is being used by ASM to recover gold poses a risk if inhaled. Mercury is accumulated in local creeks and transported by air, which poses a risk to anyone within the vicinity and to those who consume fish from the contaminated surface water. Yes, respiratory illnesses, waterborne diseases, cyanide/mercury poisoning, risk of drifts collapsing on artisanal miners N/A
If you stated “yes” to any of the risks above, what actions were taken to manage and mitigate these risks? A collaborative platform has been established through which ASMs, the Government of Suriname and Rosebel are working together to align on safe alternatives for ASMs located on the concession. Clear efforts are being made to minimize and mitigate risks identified by constructively engaging with ASMs. The Company encourages the association of artisanal miners to attend awareness-raising sessions on the risks of using chemicals, on child labour and on water pollution.
