Our roundup of Canadian small-caps of between $100-million and $2.5-billion in market capitalization making news and on the move today.

Semafo Inc. (SMF-T) issued a statement Monday morning about last week’s attack on a convoy carrying its employees in Burkina Faso. The company said it began transportation of people by helicopter from the Boungou Mine site on the weekend.

"Many of the people on-site need to be home with their families and to recover from last week's incident," Benoit Desormeaux, CEO of Semafo stated in a release. "Myself and most of our senior management team are in-country ensuring all those affected are getting the support they require. Our priority continues to be their safety, security and well being."

The company said 241 of our employees, contractors and suppliers were involved in the attack. Its current estimates have 39 fatalities, 60 injuries, 141 accounted for and one remains unaccounted for, the company stated.

"In addition to the impact on people, the unprecedent[ed] scale and nature of the attack has made basic administration and logistics very difficult," the company stated. "It will take some time to evaluate the new operating environment and to assess how we will be able to operate in a safe and secure manner in Burkina Faso. Until such time the Boungou Mine operations will continue to be suspended."
