Progress Statement on the Re-opening of Caijiaying Mine Operations


4th March 2022


Griffin Mining Limited (“Griffin” or the “Company”) announces, further, and consistent with, the announcement of 31stDecember 2021, that all staff and contractors are scheduled to return to the Caijiaying Mine and that underground mining operations are scheduled to recommence, on the 15th March 2022. The processing facilities will be initiated shortly thereafter. Underground drilling at both Zones II & III will begin earlier than planned on the 7th March 2022.


Chairman Mladen Ninkov commented, “I am grateful to all our professional staff, employees and contractors in keeping to the scheduled re-start of operations announced by the Company late last year. This is even more critical in light of the spot zinc price trading over $4,000 tonne, the highest price in over 15 years, and the significantly positive effect that will have on the cash generated by our operations.”
