Global Atomic Corporation (TSE:GLO) (OTCMKTS:GLATF) CEO Stephen Roman told shareholders Tuesday that business is “largely unaffected” by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Toronto-based firm has implemented a number of safety measures at its operations in Turkey and Niger, Roman told shareholders.

“Our continued focus on the health and safety of our employees and consultants, the safety of our operations, and the safety of the communities in which we live and work remains paramount,” Roman said.

The mining firm has eliminated unnecessary travel, instituted health protocols and given employees generous sick leave to take without penalty, with workers able to work remotely where possible to ensure continuity of operations.

According to Roman, an optimized preliminary economic assessment on the Dasa project in Niger will be published in 2Q 2020, and hydrogeological and environmental impact assessment studies are underway. In Turkey, its BST plant is operating normally.

“Our sympathies are with anyone directly or indirectly affected by COVID-19, whether they are a family member, friend, first responder or medical professional,” Roman said.

“We believe that the steps various nations are adopting to contain this outbreak have consequences, and we hope the best for you and your families.”
