Commentary

"In response to numerous shareholder inquiries concerning the impact of recent news of work stoppages at IAMGOLD‘s Mali joint ventures (IAMGOLD news release February 12, 2014IAMGOLD reports work stoppages at its joint venture operations in Mali‘) I want to clarify that IAMGOLD‘s news release is referring specifically to the IAMGOLD/AngloGold Ashanti Limited joint venture Sadiola and Yatela operating gold mines in Mali, and is not referring to the Siribaya joint venture program with Merrex" said Merrex president and CEO Greg Isenor. "If that news release had any implications for the Siribaya Gold Project joint venture we would have been notified. At this time planning of the 2014 exploration program is active and our discussions with IAMGOLDs exploration team are continuing. Details of the 2014 exploration program will be released as soon as everything is settled."
