SSR Mining is a precious metals mining company with four producing assets located in the United States, Turkey, Canada and Argentina. The Company is engaged in the operation, acquisition, exploration and development of precious metal resource properties, producing gold doré, as well as silver and lead and zinc concentrates. SSR Mining's asset portfolio is comprised of high-margin, long-life assets located in some of the world's most prolific metal districts. This lawsuit concerns SSR Mining’s mine and mining activities in Çöpler, Turkey.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, SSR Mining made materially false and misleading statements regarding its commitment to safety.

The truth began to emerge on February 13, 2024, when SSR Mining filed with the SEC a current report on a Form 8-K. Attached to this current report was a press release which announced, “a suspension of operations at the Çöpler mine as a result of a large slip on the heap leach pad.” That same day, Reuters released an article entitled “SSR Mining halts gold production in Turkey after landslide, shares tank.” The article stated that “Gold miner SSR Mining on Tuesday suspended production at a mine in eastern Turkey after a landslide, which left at least nine miners missing.”

During market hours on February 13, 2024, PBS Newshour released a story entitled “Workers at gold mine in Turkey missing, assumed trapped underground after landslide.” The article stated that “engineers warned that safety risks were frequently ignored and inspections not adequately carried out. . . . The disaster that took place in Erzincan Ilic Copler gold mine is a disaster that (was) coming.”

Following this news, the price of SSR Mining stock fell $5.22 per share, or 53.7%, to close at $4.50 on February 13, 2024.

Then, on February 27, 2024, after market hours, during the Company’s earnings call for the fourth quarter of 2023, Defendant Rodney P. Antal stated that “[s]ix personnel are being detained and are facing charges in relation to the incident and we're ensuring they receive the necessary support while respecting the Turkish legal process.”

On this news, the price of SSR Mining stock declined by $0.37 per share, or 7.93%, to close at $4.29 on February 28, 2024.

According to the complaint and throughout the Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the defendants materially overstated SSR Mining’s commitment to safety and the efficacy of its safety measures; and (2) SSR Mining engaged in unsafe mining practices which were reasonably likely to result in a mining disaster.

A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. The lead plaintiff is usually the investor or small group of investors who have the largest financial interest and who are also adequate and typical of the proposed class of investors. The lead plaintiff selects counsel to represent the lead plaintiff and the class and these attorneys, if approved by the court, are lead or class counsel. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Communicating with any counsel is not necessary to participate or share in any recovery achieved in this case. Any member of the purported class may move the Court to serve as a lead plaintiff through counsel of his/her choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an inactive class member.
