Environment & Corporate Social Responsibility Specialist

Toronto, Ontario

Date Posted: May 27, 2020

Torex Gold is an intermediate gold producer based in Toronto Canada, engaged in the exploration, development, and operation of its 100% owned Morelos Gold Property, an area of 29,000 hectares in the highly prospective Guerrero Gold Belt located 180 kilometers southwest of Mexico City. The Company’s principal assets are the El Limón Guajes Mining Complex (the “ELG Mine Complex”) and the Media Luna deposit.

The ELG Mine Complex is a 14,000 tpd gold mine which has been in production since 2016 and comprises three open pits, an underground mine, and a CN/CIP processing plant.

Concurrent with work on the Morelos Property, Torex is developing a new underground mining system called Muckahi. The Muckahi Mining System is currently undergoing field trials at the ELG UG mine.

Recruitment Fraud

It has come to our attention that individuals and/or organizations have used the name of Torex in fraudulent recruitment advertising and email communications. Torex takes reports of such fraudulent activity seriously and we deal with them via our legal team. We are taking what steps we can to prevent individuals falling victim to fraudulent practices.

What is a Fake/Fraudulent Recruitment Offer?

A fake/fraudulent recruitment offer is an attempt to obtain cash or personal information from victims by offering jobs that do not exist. These scams are conducted via the internet using fake company websites and/or by sending unsolicited emails purporting to be from a Torex employee or from our company careers site. The scammers request personal data and/or cash on the pretext that this is to finalize the fake employment opportunity.

How to recognize a Fake/Fraudulent Recruitment Offer

  • If you receive an email purportedly from Torex or that instructs you to send replies to an email address other than one ending with @torexgold.com, please treat it as a fraudulent employment offer and forward it to us at jobs@torexgold.com. Any email with a similar format (e.g. “torexgolds.com”) is not authentic
  • If the job is not listed on our website at www.torexgold.com/careers/job-opportunities. Please use the links on our website to apply for jobs
  • If you receive a job offer that involves the payment of fees it is a scam. Torex does not use recruitment or placement agencies that charges candidates an advance fee of any kind (e.g. placement fees, immigration processing fees, visa/work permits, travel expenses etc.)
  • If you are asked for personal information like date of birth, passport numbers or banking information
  • If there is an insistence on urgency (e.g. must reply within 24 hours)
  • If you are given a job offer without having been interviewed in our offices
  • The email or alleged contract makes poor use of language and/or contains spelling errors

What should you do if affected by a Recruitment Scam?

  • If affected by a recruitment scam we recommend that you should:
  • Not respond to the email
  • Report the fraudulent offer to us by emailing jobs@torexgold.com

Forward the complete email message to us at jobs@torexgold.com. Do not change or alter the message content in any way. Keep all subsequent messages received from the scammers to assist us with any future investigation if necessary. Please ensure you provide us with the original email content including subject line as well as the full ‘header’ and ‘router’ data in order to trace the email's path through the internet to your email system. This information is only available to the original recipient. This data can help in tracing the location of where the email originated.
