Ethics and Compliance

We are committed to strong corporate governance and a culture built on transparency, accountability and integrity. The process of identifying, developing and maintaining high standards of corporate governance is ongoing and dynamic, and Aris Gold continues to implement initiatives to enhance corporate governance practices and disclosures.

We require everyone who does business on Aris Gold’s behalf to maintain the highest levels of integrity and standards of business conduct. Our Business Conduct and Ethics Policy and Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy together form our Code of Conduct (the “Code”). All directors, officers, employees and contractors must provide a certification of compliance with the policies that make up the Code.

A Supplier Code of Conduct extends these expectations and requirements to those who conduct business on our behalf, and suppliers are required to read, understand and comply with both the Company’s Code of Conduct and the Supplier Code of Conduct.

As stated in our Whistleblower Policy, any person concerned about the possibility of business conduct that is illegal, unethical or contrary to the policies of the Company is encouraged to report alleged violations or complaints by contacting the Board’s Audit Committee in writing or submitting such complaint or concern through the Company’s online whistleblower platform.
