Client NewsAsiamet Resources Limited: Business Update
Asiamet Resources Limited (“Asiamet” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide the following update with respect to its BKM copper development project and the Kalimantan Suraya Kencana Contract of Work (“KSK CoW”) located in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.
Over the past two months there has been a very significant and rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 infections across Indonesia. As a result, the Government of Indonesia has implemented a series of lockdowns and extensive travel restrictions with many businesses and government departments working at a reduced capacity, remotely or from home. Infection has directly impacted a number of our staff and contractors, and travel restrictions have slowed progress on our various workstreams.
The health and safety of our staff, contractors, local communities, and all stakeholders to the project remains of the highest priority to the Company and we have implemented strict COVID-19 protocols with respect to testing, isolation and medical treatment for anyone associated with site-based activities.

Value engineering activities are progressing to plan.
