  2. 2. 2 This presentation contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable securities laws, including statements relating to life of mine production plans, exploration plans and the growth and strategy of Mandalay. Actual results and developments may differ materially from those contemplated by these statements depending on, among other things: exploration results or production results not meeting management’s expectations; capital, production and operating cost results not meeting current plans; and changes in commodity prices and general market and economic conditions. The factors identified above are not intended to represent a complete list of the factors that could affect Mandalay. A description of additional risks that could result in actual results and developments differing from those contemplated by forward looking statements in this presentation can be found under the heading “Risk Factors” in Mandalay’s annual information form dated March 30, 2020, a copy of which is available under Mandalay’s profile at Although Mandalay has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

  4. 4. 4 COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND MANAGEMENT CONTROLS SAFE PRODUCTION AND SAFE WORKING CONDITIONS Priority remains the health and safety of our employees, contractors and the communities in which we operate. Our management teams have taken comprehensive measures to reinforce safe work procedures and business continuity plans are in place with site-specific contingency considerations, should they be needed. Mandalay will continue monitoring information from governments and health organizations. The following protocols are in place at our operations: • Surveyed workforce to identify at high-risk employees; • Established clear policies for any workers displaying signs of illness. Employees or contractors cannot come to work if displaying any symptoms; • Intermittent on-site temperature checks; • Where possible, employees to work from home, and flexible work arrangements are in place to reduce contact between persons and maintain social distancing guidelines; • Sites have reviewed hygiene and sanitization protocols and increased frequency in cleaning of common and high-traffic zones. Additional hand washing stations installed; • Implementing risk management processes for crew shift changes to ensure social distancing protocols and reduction in movement of employees between crews; and • Restricting visitors to essential visitors only.
