SEMAFO: Armed Incident in Bobo Area
Montreal, Quebec, August 17, 2018 - SEMAFO Inc. (TSX, OMX: SMF) regrets to report that a bus transporting employees from the town of Bobo-Dioulasso to the Mana Mine in Burkina Faso was shot at by armed bandits this morning. In the exchange of fire between the policemen and bandits, one SEMAFO national employee and one sub-contractor employee lost their lives.

Operations at the Mana Mine, located 80 kilometers from the incident, are not affected.

The Corporation would like to express its sincere sympathy to families of the victims.
