Canadian gold miner Equinox Gold has launched the ‘Ride to Greenstone’, a 3 634 km bike relay from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Geraldton, Ontario, to celebrate the official opening of the new Greenstone mine.

The focus of the ride is to raise money for the Geraldton District Hospital, which serves a 2 767-km2 region in northern Ontario, including five Indigenous communities and the Greenstone mine workforce.

Equinox’s mine sites in California, Mexico and Brazil are sending cyclists to join this expedition and are also organising a variety of events to raise money for charities in their local communities.

“Supporting community health and education is one of our top priorities as a company, and we are thrilled to see the entire Equinox Gold family of employees, contractors and suppliers coming together to raise money for the Geraldton District Hospital,” said chairperson Ross Beaty.

The company has raised more than C$950 000 to date through early sponsorship outreach and will be encouraging its vendors, contractors and industry leaders to sponsor the journey.

Information on the seven charities and how to donate is available on the Ride to Greenstone website.

The cyclists will set off from the company's head office in Vancouver on August 5 at 8:00 am.
