ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands, July 29, 2021 — Aura Minerals Inc. (TSX: ORA) (B3: AURA33) (“Aura” or the “Company”) announced today that operations at its San Andres gold mine in Honduras have been resumed, after being illegally interrupted by a small group of individuals, as previously announced by the Company on July 8, 2021.
Aura expects the interruption to have limited impact on its 2021 consolidated production guidance, and to impact mostly the higher end of the 2021 production range guidance for its Honduras operations.
Aura will release updated guidance for 2021 for the Company as a whole, and for each of its Business Units, on August 10, 2021, as part of its Q2 2021 Financial Statements and Management Discussion & Analysis release.
Rodrigo Barbosa, President & CEO, commented: “We are glad to announce the restart, which is a result, most importantly, of a peaceful dialogue among the parties.”
This press release contains “forward-looking information” and “forward-looking statements”, as defined in applicable securities laws (collectively, “forward-looking statements”) which include, but are not limited to, the expected production for the San Andres mine and Aura as a whole in the 2021 and the expected release date of the Company’s Q2 2021 Financial Statements and Management Discussion & Analysis.
Known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond the Company’s ability to predict or control, could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Specific reference is made to the most recent Annual Information Form on file with certain Canadian provincial securities regulatory authorities for a discussion of some of the factors underlying forward-looking statements.
All forward-looking statements herein are qualified by this cautionary statement. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information or future events or otherwise, except as may be required by law. If the Company does update one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be drawn that it will make additional updates with respect to those or other forward-looking statements.
