ROSEBEL GOLD MINES

Rosebel Gold Mines N.V., established on May 8, 2002, is a subsidiary of IAMGOLD.

IAMGOLD holds 95% of the share capital of Rosebel, while the Republic of Suriname owns the remaining 5%. In 2011, negotiations between IAMGOLD and the Republic of Suriname commenced on the expansion of the company’s gold production. On June 6, 2013, the parties signed the Second Amendment of the Mineral Agreement. Out of this agreement, a new Unincorporated Joint Venture (UJV) vehicle has been created, the Pikin Saramacca project, in which the Surinamese Government will participate for 30% and Rosebel for 70%. With this expansion, the projected Life of Mine (LOM) has been increased to 2033.

Pikin Saramacca haul road

For the transportation of gold ore from the new concession a new haul road is being constructed, as Pikin Saramacca is 25 km from the main Rosebel site. The haul road construction is expected to be completed by the end of March 2020. In October 2019, the first ore from Pikin Saramacca was successfully delivered to the Rosebel mill, using an alternate road. The new mine is scheduled to begin full production in April 2020, with an operation time of 15 years.

Socio-economic development Suriname

From the start of its operations, Rosebel has made substantial contributions to the socio-economic development of Suriname by the implementation of several sustainable projects. From full sponsorship of the Master’s program in Mineral Geosciences, an investment of USD 900.000,00 in total, to Scholarships for the best graduates of the MULO-school in Brokopondo, enabling them to attend High School and University in Paramaribo. In 2019 there was a focus on contributing to healthcare projects. Rosebel has also committed to a contribution of 0.25% of its gold production to the Suriname Environmental and Mining Foundation (SEMIF), to finance its activities.
