Press Release

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 3, 2024) – Equinox Gold Corp. (TSX: EQX) (NYSE American: EQX) (“Equinox Gold” or the “Company”) today is launching the Ride to Greenstone, an epic 3,634 km bike relay from Vancouver, BC to Geraldton, Ontario, to celebrate the official opening of the Company’s 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 Gold’s mine sites in California, Mexico and Brazil are sending cyclists to join this expedition and are also organizing a variety of events to raise money for charities in their local communities, bringing the Company’s global workforce, contractors and suppliers together to support the communities in which we work.

Ross Beaty, Chair of Equinox Gold, commented: “The Ride to Greenstone highlights our commitment to the health and well-being of our team, emphasizing physical activity, team building and fun. 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.”

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

The cyclists will officially set off from the Company’s head office in Vancouver on August 5th at 8:00 am. Daily progress updates will be provided on the Company’s social media channels and on the Ride to Greenstone website.
