Update: Gemfields’ Ethiopia Operations

Gemfields previously advised that the emerald bulk‐sampling operations of Web Gemstone Mining plc (“WGM”), an Ethiopian company in which Gemfields holds a 75% interest, were overrun by a mob (estimated at between 300 and 500 persons) on 29 June 2018.

WGM’s employees, contractors and service providers were safely evacuated on the same day, with two members of the WGM team suffering minor injuries at the hands of the mob, both of whom have since made full recoveries.
