Contracting Fraud

Aurelian Ecuador S.A., a subsidiary of Lundin Gold Inc. and owner of the Fruta del Norte gold project, informs the community and the general public that it has come to our attention that the name of the Project and Lundin Gold have been used by people unrelated to our company for fraudulent purposes concerning the alleged contracting of machinery and services. These services have not been requested by Aurelian Ecuador S.A. As mentioned above, the cited activities are fraudulent and illegitimate.

Aurelian Ecuador S.A. maintains a procurement strategy which requires, as a first step, that any potential suppliers of Aurelian Ecuador S.A. be certified through a bidding process carried out by a third party. Additionally, Aurelian Ecuador S.A. opens bidding processes when required by the project; therefore, there are no direct awards that are not the result of a formal bidding process. As part of the process, the winning bidders receive a limited notice to proceed or a letter of award and documents that substantiate said award.

Neither Lundin Gold Inc. nor Aurelian Ecuador S.A. assume any liability to third parties for alleged negotiating or contracting of machinery and services not requested by Aurelian Ecuador S.A. If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud or know of these practices, we ask that you please report such acts to the Judicial Police or to the Attorney General’s Office.
