"Long before the Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) movement went mainstream, Ivanhoe committed to being a modern leader in sustainability, environmental stewardship, community partnerships and responsible mineral production," said Executive Co-Chairman Robert Friedland. "Together with our partners, we are expanding Kamoa-Kakula to be the world's 'greenest' copper mine, and our team is confident that Ivanhoe will be an ESG leader in the mining industry for generations to come, with key exposure to commodities that are crucial components in the clean-energy transition."

In her introduction to the report, President and Chief Financial Officer Marna Cloete commended the Ivanhoe family for maintaining unity and strength during a challenging year: "Despite the strain, grief and challenges presented during the reporting year, our teams have rallied together, providing their unwavering commitment and support and thereby enabling Ivanhoe not only to navigate the unprecedented impacts of COVID-19 on our operations and daily engagements, but also to foster innovative partnerships and solutions to some of our problems which will have lasting, positive effects for our operations and host communities."

Patricia Makhesha, Executive Vice President, Sustainability and Special Projects, added: "Ivanhoe's culture is the heartbeat of our organization and is integral to everything that we do. Our culture is one of caring for others, and therefore of operating with the best interests of our key stakeholders in mind. Our culture encourages open communication at all levels of the organization, and behind the scenes at Ivanhoe we are all one big family, committed to each other and to the organizational mandate, which is rooted in a deep commitment to the sustainable development agenda."

About Ivanhoe Mines

Ivanhoe Mines is a Canadian mining company focused on advancing its three principal joint-venture projects in Southern Africa: the development of major new, mechanized, underground mines at the Kamoa-Kakula copper discoveries in the Democratic Republic of Congo and at the Platreef palladium-rhodium-platinum-nickel-copper-gold discovery in South Africa; and the extensive redevelopment and upgrading of the historic Kipushi zinc-copper-germanium-silver mine, also in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Kamoa-Kakula began producing copper concentrates in May 2021 and, through phased expansions, is positioned to become one of the world's largest copper producers. Kamoa-Kakula and Kipushi will be powered by clean, renewable hydro-generated electricity and will be among the world's lowest greenhouse gas emitters per unit of metal produced. Ivanhoe Mines has pledged to achieve net-zero operational greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 and 2) at the Kamoa-Kakula Copper Mine when large-scale electric, hydrogen and hybrid underground mining equipment become commercially available. Ivanhoe also is exploring for new copper discoveries on its Western Foreland exploration licences in the Democratic Republic of Congo, near the Kamoa-Kakula Project.
