Hummingbird Resources plc provided a security update on the Yanfolila mine in Mali. In recent days there has been unrest and illegal road blocks in the region. This activity has impacted the Company's ability to safely continue operations at the mine and as such Yanfolila is temporarily offline until conditions allow. The safety and wellbeing of employees, contractors and business partners remains Hummingbird's highest priority. The situation on site remains calm and orderly with all employees and contractors safe and accounted for. Once conditions allow, a full assessment of plant and equipment will be carried out and any potential impacts will be evaluated. Hummingbird is extremely proud of the positive and collaborative relationship it has developed with its host communities. The current illegal action is from a small minority and not representive of the communities where the Company operates, and is damaging for all concerned. Given the unrest includes illegal activities such as public order and blocking of public access roads, the Company has elevated the disruption to the national Government, who are in the process of working through the situation and resolving it. It is anticipated that the Company should be in a position to return to normal operations shortly. This interruption to operations is impacting production and whilst it is currently difficult to evaluate the full impact at this time, the Company advises that the full year production will be below the bottom end of the 2021 guidance range. The Company will provide more details as soon as there is more clarity on the resolution of the distruption and its impacts.
