Agnico Eagle understands that operating responsibly and maintaining the trust of our stakeholders requires us to demonstrate that the gold we produce has been extracted in a manner that does not fuel unlawful armed conflict or contribute to serious human rights abuses or breaches of international law. As such, we have adopted and implemented the World Gold Council’s (WGC) Conflict-Free Gold Standard (CFGS).

Conformance with the CFGS demonstrates that gold has been extracted in a manner that does not cause, support or benefit unlawful armed conflict or contribute to serious human rights abuses or breaches of international humanitarian law. Agnico Eagle implemented the CFGS, beginning with the 2013 calendar year. This is our fourth year of adherence and reporting under the CFGS.

Under the CFGS, companies are required to issue a Certification Report which outlines their adherence. The Report is updated annually and is issued within 120 days of the year-end, or as required by the CFGS. Our 2017 Certification Report covers all gold or gold-bearing materials dispatched by Agnico Eagle for the calendar year ended December 31, 2017.

Our Certification Report has been verified by Ernst & Young, an independent assurance provider. Ernst & Young conducted its assessment under the CFGS for the period from January 1 to December 31, 2017. It confirmed that the mines identified under Section A – the Pinos Altos, Creston Mascota and La India operations in Mexico – are in conformance with the CFGS
