COVID-19

The Sasa mine continues to operate, with no disruptions to production or sales to date due to COVID-19,

With COVID-19 cases rising in  North Macedonia and the government introducing escalating measures, SASA has taken a significant number of steps to try to ensure the continued good health of its team members, including:

  • Established a COVID-19 ‘Crisis Committee’

  • Instructing staff to work from home wherever possible 

  • A cessation of all but essential international travel

  • A cessation of all but necessary visitors to site (subject to authorization from General Director)

  • Identification and close monitoring of team members most vulnerable to COVID-19

  • The distribution of COVID-19 related PPE to employees and contractors

  • The distribution of COVID-19 related PPE to community members in our community

  • Undertaken a detailed review of all activities  to ensure that social distancing is at the heart of how we operate during the pandemic

  • Made changes to alcohol testing at Sasa to increase social distancing

  • Made changes to canteen and transport arrangements  to increase social distancing

  • Reinforced relevant government guidance and increased hygiene measures

  • Issued instructions to employees to stay at home if they suffer from any potential COVID-19 symptoms

  • Requesting employees take their temperatures before coming into work, and testing temperatures at the mine gate

  • The review of critical inventory levels to support production in the case of supply disruptions

Our top priority during this time is the welfare of our employees and contractors.
