SSR Mining Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the acquisition, exploration, development, and operation of precious metal resource properties in Turkey and the Americas. The company explores for gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc deposits. Its projects include the Çöpler Gold mine located in Erzincan, Turkey; the Marigold mine located in Humboldt County, Nevada, the United States; the Seabee Gold Operation located in Saskatchewan, Canada; and the Puna Operations in Jujuy, Argentina. The company was formerly known as Silver Standard Resources Inc. and changed its name to SSR Mining Inc. in August 2017. SSR Mining Inc. was incorporated in 1946 and is based in Denver, Colorado.
SSR Mining was formed in August 2016 when Alacer Gold Corporation, which was founded in 2006, merged with Claude Resources Inc., which was founded in 1981. The combination saw the company become a globally diversified gold producer, with a balance of operations in Canada and the United States. The merger provided access to US capital markets, enhanced liquidity and expanded financial flexibility to fund the company’s growth plans.
SSR Mining is committed to delivering safe, sustainable and profitable mining through technical excellence, responsible resource development, and financial stewardship.
SSR Mining will be a leading precious metals producer, providing superior returns to our shareholders, and opportunities for our employees.
