The audit committee of Centerra Gold Inc. has approved the following procedures for the confidential and anonymous submission of employee complaints regarding violations of Centerra's Code of Ethics, including concerns regarding accounting and auditing matters.
Centerra's Code of Ethics provides that any employee may submit a good faith complaint or concern regarding suspected violations of the Code of Ethics, including concerns regarding accounting or auditing matters, confidentially to Centerra's General Counsel without fear of dismissal or retaliation of any kind, who will in turn communicate the concerns to the audit committee.
Employees can contact the General Counsel by sending by regular mail (or other means of delivery) to the corporate headquarters address of Centerra (Suite 1500 – 1 University Ave., Toronto, Ontario, M5J 2P1 Canada) a sealed envelope marked "Private and Strictly Confidential - Attention: General Counsel". Every reasonable effort will be made to ensure the confidentiality of those furnishing information. If an employee prefers to report an allegation anonymously, he or she must provide enough information about the incident or situation to allow Centerra to investigate properly and effectively.
Employees may report their concerns anonymously by using Centerra's Compliance Hotline, which has been established in connection with the Code of Ethics. The Compliance Hotline is a 24 hours-a-day service which is operated by an independent third-party service provider. Instructions for access to the Compliance Hotline are as follows:
