Blackwater Project

COVID-19 is a global threat which requires a united response from governments, industry and our communities to ensure the safety, health and well-being of all.

Consistent with recent guidance with respect to spread of the novel coronavirus, Vanderhoof and Vancouver office staff have been working from home since March 16th. New Gold will be closely monitoring the situation to determine an appropriate time to re-open the offices. During this time, the offices will be closed but staff are available via phone or email, and office phones have been forwarded to mobile phones.

We have implemented a number of additional measures including, but not limited to:

  • Eliminating all business travel (international and otherwise, except for travel to and from your work site) that is not business critical, which may only occur with the express approval of a Senior Leadership Team member.
  • Instituting self-quarantine measures for anyone who has been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or who has travelled either internationally or domestically within the past 14-days.
  • Participating in meetings via phone, but not in person.
  • Enhancing office cleaning and sanitizing measures in anticipation for the return of staff and welcoming of visitors.
  • Increasing the presence of security guards on patrol and limiting elevator access to our floor and suite to “employee access card only” for the Vancouver office.
  • Implementing a check-in and check-out procedure for the Vanderhoof office, and maintaining a locked-door policy when staff must attend the office to perform business-critical functions.
  • Employees who must visit the office during the closure period are first asked to complete a Covid-19 self-assessment and access the office using personal vehicles instead of public transit.
  • Blackwater camp is on care and maintenance.
