TORONTO, June 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GCM Mining Corp. ("GCM Mining" or the "Company") (TSX: GCM, OTCQX: TPRFF) announced today that it has published its second annual ESG report entitled "2021 Sustainability Report" which is available on its website at www.gcm-mining.com.
Lombardo Paredes, Chief Executive Officer of GCM Mining, commenting on the Company's latest ESG report which focuses on the Company's Segovia Operations, said, "ESG has always been an important part of our operations and our annual report gives us an opportunity to highlight our initiatives and progress in line with international reporting standards. Our people are key to our success and we remain focused on continuing to provide opportunities for training and advancement and to improve health and safety throughout our operations. We actively participate with our communities to reinforce existing relationships through job creation, social and economic growth in our areas of operation and support for local businesses through local procurement. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of healthcare for our workers, their families and the stakeholders in the areas where we operate. We were able to supply 12,780 vaccine doses and, as a result, we have vaccinated close to 20% of the population in the municipalities where we are located. We are also committed to the environment and actions against climate change. Anchored in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we have taken on the challenge of conducting the necessary actions to address the complexity of this global issue. I would like to thank all of our employees, contractors and the community for their ongoing support. I encourage our stakeholders to read our ESG report and to watch our latest videos which provide a tremendous overview of our ESG initiatives and their impact on our operations and communities."
In support of its annual ESG report, GCM Mining has also released a full-length video entitled 'A Sustainable World' and additional video segments entitled 'The Era of Transformation' which focus on GCM Mining's new polymetallic plant, its El Chocho tailings storage facility, its artisanal small-scale mining model and its education initiatives, all at its Segovia Operations. The videos, produced and directed by award-winning Colombian journalist Yamid Ahmad, give viewers an opportunity to see the positive impact of GCM Mining's ESG initiatives throughout the communities of Segovia and Remedios and highlight the Company's operational and ESG initiatives, progress and accomplishments. The videos can be found on the Company's website at www.gcm-mining.com and on its YouTube page.
