Ivanhoe Mines (IVN) Co-Chairs Robert Friedland and Yufeng "Miles" Sun congratulate the people of South Africa on Freedom Day.

It was on this day in 1994 that South Africa held its first multiracial general election, marking the end to apartheid.

"Today, on Freedom Day, we celebrate with the great people of South Africa on their extraordinary journey of freedom, reconciliation and democracy," said Friedland.

"We also salute the intrepid pioneers of Ivanhoe Mines, who in 1994 began our remarkable exploration journey in southern Africa that eventually resulted in the discovery of the tier-one Platreef and Kamoa-Kakula deposits," added Friedland.

Kgalema Motlanthe, former President and Deputy President of South Africa, and an Ivanhoe Mines Director commented: "27 years ago today, South Africans from all walks of life, colour and creed waited in long queues to cast their votes."

"This occasion was pregnant with possibilities, and the world waited to witness the dawn of democracy in South Africa," added Motlanthe.

Marna Cloete, Ivanhoe's President and CFO, added,

"The diversity and inclusion of our executive committee and the entire company is a true reflection of our rich South African culture that always strives for unity and freedom in our daily lives."

Ivanhoe Mines is a Canadian mining company focused on advancing its three principal joint-venture projects in Southern Africa.

Firstly, the development of major new, mechanized, underground mines at the Kamoa-Kakula copper discoveries in the DRC and at the Platreef palladium-platinum-nickel-copper-rhodium-gold discovery in South Africa.

Its other project consists of the extensive redevelopment and upgrading of the historic Kipushi zinc-copper-germanium-silver mine, also in the DRC.

Ivanhoe Mines (IVN) is down 0.67 per cent and is trading at C$8.91 at 1:13 pm ET.
