August 1stis an important day in our evolution as we change our name to SSR Mining to more accurately reflect our business focus. We have evolved from a silver-focused explorer to an intermediate precious metals producer with three mines in the Americas, two of which produce predominantly gold.

In fact, in 2017, approximately 80% of our revenue will be generated from gold production. We feel it is important to reflect our over 70-year history and, as such, our new name includes the initials of our existing name and builds on a strong brand, well-known by our stakeholders and the investment community.
