Chinese New Year and Winter Olympic & Paralympic Games Shut Down
31st December 2021
Griffin Mining Limited (“Griffin” or the “Company”) announces, in accordance with the previous announcement made on the 5thOctober 2021, that mining and milling operations ceased on the night shift last night and, as is customary practice for the Caijiaying Mine, mining operations will remain closed during the Chinese New Year holiday period with the cessation extended into the first quarter of 2022 due to the Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games and re-open on the 14th March 2022.
Chairman Mladen Ninkov commented, “As forewarned in October of this year, the mining and milling operations will remain closed for the Chinese New Year holiday period, the Winter Olympic Games and Paralympic Games and re-open on the 14thMarch 2022. This will, obviously, cause a bleak financial first quarter for the Company in 2022. However, we remain grateful to the various levels of government in the People’s Republic of China in allowing the Company to operate in the lead up period to this high profile and joyous event and acknowledge the tremendous achievement in Beijing becoming the first city in history to have hosted both the summer and winter Olympic Games. We wish the games every success.”
