It has been brought to our attention that a recruitment firm operating under the name of “Global Recruitment” purports to have been given a mandate to act as GB Minerals Ltd.’s, or its subsidiaries’, official recruitment agency for the hiring of expatriate employees for its Farim phosphate project in Guinea-Bissau. We have been informed of numerous recent incidents that have occurred with “Global Recruitment” that has been falsely pretending to recruit on behalf of GB Minerals Ltd. or its subsidiaries, or by people claiming to work for, or be affiliated to, GB Minerals Ltd. or its subsidiaries. These propositions notify individuals that their qualifications were found suitable to work as an employee (local or expatriate) and solicit the transfer of sums of money to pay for work permits, insurance policies, etc. Please be aware that these communications are fraudulent and do not originate from GB Minerals Ltd. nor from any of its subsidiaries.
The management of GB Minerals Ltd. wishes to clarify that no such mandate has been given to “Global Recruitment” or any other recruitment firm and strongly advises prospective candidates to refrain from applying for any potential positions with GB Minerals Ltd. advertised by “Global Recruitment”. Please note that GB Minerals Ltd. and its subsidiaries (nor any of the official recruitment agencies that recruit on our behalf) never ask for any money or payments from applicants, at any point in the recruitment process
A reminder on indication of such fraudulent communications are likely to come from suspicious or non-company domain e-mail addresses (e.g. from a yahoo.com, gmail.com, outlook.com, and etc. address); the use of English is poor; at some stage, money is requested. We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited business propositions and/or offers from people with whom you are unfamiliar. Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know. If you receive such proposals, we would advise you to contact GB Minerals Ltd. and/or your local police and provide them with all information you may have from the senders (email addresses, phone/fax details, etc.)
