Calibre Releases 2023 Sustainability Report, Highlighting Our Commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance Performance


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calibre Mining Corp. (TSX: CXB; OTCQX: CXBMF) (the “Company” or “Calibre”) is pleased to announce the publication of its fourth Annual Sustainability Report, highlighting the Company’s robust financial growth and steadfast commitment to sustainability.

Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) standards are deeply rooted in Calibre's operations and integral to the Company’s business performance. ESG principles have played a pivotal role in Calibre's success and growth as the Company transitioned from a prospect generator/explorer to a gold producer in 2019, expanded operations to Nevada in 2022, and is now building Atlantic Canada’s largest gold mine. The Company has achieved significant milestones over these four years including 28% compounded annual production growth, a 370% increase in Mineral Reserves, and the accumulation of US$144 million in cash reserves1. All of this has been made possible, in large part, by Calibre’s firm commitment to sustainability.

Darren Hall, President and Chief Executive Officer of Calibre, stated: “Calibre’s reputation of delivering on its commitments extends well beyond financial metrics; it reflects our commitment to sustainability which is woven into the fabric of our business.

Our success is deeply intertwined with the communities where we operate. Engagement and transparency with stakeholders, including host communities, local government authorities, and Indigenous groups, forms the cornerstone of our sustainability strategy. By actively listening to their needs and concerns, we strive to be good neighbors, creating mutually beneficial partnerships. Our commitment to free, prior, and informed consent with Indigenous communities underscores our dedication to responsible mining practices and community development.

Calibre’s 2023 Sustainability Report has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”) Standards and the related GRI 14: Mining Sector 2024 Sector Standard; the Value Reporting Foundation’s Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (“SASB”) 2023 Metals and Mining Industry Standards; and the Mining Local Procurement Reporting Mechanism (“LPRM”), for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2023.

Calibre also published its first Bill S-211 report “Canada’s Fighting Against Forced and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act” which is Canada’s new legislation aimed at fighting modern slavery. This report is available here and addresses all legal requirements of the Canadian Supply Chains Act and informs on steps taken to prevent and reduce the risk that forced, or child labour is used at any step of our business and supply chain. This report underscores our commitment to combating forced labor and child labor in global supply chains and serves as a testament to our dedication to responsible practices.”
