TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TRX Gold Corporation (TSX:TNX) (NYSE American:TRX) (the “Company” or “TRX Gold”) is excited to announce that the Buckreef Gold Project has reached one million working hours without a lost-time or recordable injury, a clear reflection of the team’s focus and commitment to the health and safety of its members and consultants.

“At any one time at the Buckreef Gold Project, there can be well over 100 employees or more on site, with two shifts working a 24-hour, 7 day per week operation. The mine site workplace is home to employees, consultants and exploration drilling partners STAMICO, all of whom I’d like to thank for their diligence and dedication,” remarks TRX Gold Chief Operating Officer Andrew Cheatle.

Stephen Mullowney, TRX Gold Chief Executive Officer continues, “The health, safety and well-being of our employees and all of those involved in making Buckreef Gold a success are core to our company’s business. A healthy and safe work force translates into engagement and productivity.”

This remarkable achievement was attained within a 22-month period, guided by policies, practices and procedures that have been adopted by the Company and introduced as early as an employee’s onboarding. Daily Health & Safety meetings are part of the ritual, during which employees are invited to play an integral part of the program by observing, identifying, and reporting any on-site situation that can be a potential hazard.

TRX Gold will continue to ensure the safety of all its employees and surrounding public and looks forward to continuing a safety-first culture.
