SSR Mining is a mining company with four mining assets worldwide, located in the United States, Turkey, Canada, and Argentina.

The action alleges that during the Class Period, the Company made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s operations, including (i) overstating SSR Mining’s commitment to safety and the efficacy of its safety measures, and (ii) failing to disclose that it was engaged in unsafe mining practices that were reasonably likely to result in a mining disaster.

On February 13, 2024, before the market opened, the Company announced that it had suspended operations at its Copler, Turkey gold mine because of a large landslide, which resulted in nine missing miners (the miners were declared dead several days later). On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $5.22 per share, or 53.7%, to close at $4.50 per share, on February 13, 2024.

On February 16, 2024, reporting revealed that eight SSR Mining employees in Turkey had been detained after the landslide, and that the Turkish government had filed criminal charges against six of them.

Then, on Sunday February 18, 2024, Sky News reported that a director and senior vice-president of operations at SSR Mining had been detained. The same day, a Company press release did not contest that criminal charges proceeding against six Company employees were filed on legitimate grounds. On this news, the price of SSR Mining stock declined by $0.29 per share, or 5.90%, to close at $4.62 per share on the next trading day, February 20, 2024.

On February 27, 2024, the Company withdrew its 2024 and long-term guidance forecasts in light of the suspension, and stated that it was in the process of evaluating anticipated remedial costs for the Copler mine, including extensive environmental clean-up. On this news, the price of SSR Mining stock dropped by $0.37 per share, or 7.93%, to close at $4.29 on February 28, 2024.
