B2Gold Reports Three Fatalities from Off-Site Incident in Mali

B2Gold Corp. (TSX: BTO, NYSE AMERICAN: BTG, NSX: B2G) ("B2Gold" or the "Company") deeply regrets to report that three B2Gold employees have passed away as a result of injuries sustained in an off-site incident in Mali earlier today. B2Gold wishes to express its deepest condolences to the families of the deceased employees.

Traveling under Malian gendarme escort, a bus transporting B2Gold employees from the Fekola Mine to Bamako was involved in an incident when it was attacked approximately 75 kilometers west of Bamako. Initial reports have identified this tragic event as the result of an attack on the employee transport convoy, which included Malian gendarmerie vehicles in front and in the rear of the transport convoy. Unfortunately, the incident resulted in the death of three employees. Initial reports indicate several other employees travelling on the bus were wounded, all whom have been transported to a local hospital. Other personnel involved in the incident were transported to Bamako for assistance and counselling.

The attack occurred over 300 kilometers northeast of the Fekola Mine site, along a transport route that has been the focus of an increased security presence by the Malian armed forces. Mining and processing activities at the Fekola Mine have not been impacted by this incident. The Company has been actively engaged with the Malian government on further improvement to security along the transport route. The Company is working with the Malian government to understand further details of the attack.

ON BEHALF OF B2GOLD CORP.

"Clive T. Johnson"
President & Chief Executive Officer

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Smashes Through US$2,400, What's Going On?

It was another record-breaking week for gold, which surged past US$2,400 per ounce for the first time ever.

Some market watchers are pointing to safe-haven demand as the reason for the surge as tensions rise in the Middle East — concerns that Iran will launch an attack on Israel have been described as "credible" and "viable."

Other experts think there are less obvious factors at play — activity in the options market and Comex net managed money are a couple that have been mentioned. But many are suggesting that we just don't know what's happening yet.

5 Biggest Gold ETFs in 2024

Gold exchange-traded funds, or gold ETFs, have risen in popularity among investors who want precious metals exposure.

ETFs are similar to mutual funds in that they track assets such as stocks, bonds, currencies or commodities; a key difference is that ETFs can be bought and sold on exchanges, making them widely accessible. They provide considerable flexibility in implementing various investment strategies and in building investment portfolios.

Gold ETFs are fairly common today, and are a good choice for investors who want to invest in precious metals without trading gold futures or owning physical gold, such as gold coins or bars.
