Diamcor Announces Application for a Management Cease Trade Order
September 9, 2020
Kelowna, B.C. September 9, 2020 – Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V.DMI / OTCQB-DMIFF), (the “Company”) announces that due to ongoing delays in South Africa noted below, the Company will be unable to file its audited financial statements and corresponding management’s discussion and analysis for the year ended March 31, 2020 (collectively, the “Financial Disclosure”) on or before the prescribed filing deadline of September 14, 2020 as required by National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations and British Columbia Securities Commission Blanket Order 51-517 – Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements with Deadlines during the Period from June 2 to August 31, 2020.
The Company’s mining operations are located in South Africa, which has been documented as being an area which has imposed some of the strictest COVID-19 related lock down and quarantine measures worldwide. The reasons for the delay in filing include: the inability to complete the South African portion of the Company’s annual audit in normal time frames as a result of ongoing travel and work restrictions, the Canadian auditors inability to complete their audit due to reliance on the finalization of audit work in South Africa, and the requirement for Canadian auditors to obtain information from South Africa by alternative methods. Some of the requested supporting documentation is not in the control or direction of the Company and consequently the Company was unable to fulfill the auditor’s request prior to the filing deadline for the Financial Disclosure.
The Company is working to provide the additional documentation to its auditors and to complete the audit of the financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2020. The Company anticipates that it will be in a position to file its Financial Disclosure before October 15, 2020. The Company confirms that it will comply with the alternative information guidelines included in National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders, for so long as it remains in default of a specified requirement.
The Company has filed an application with the British Columbia Securities Commission and the Alberta Securities Commission requesting that they issue a management cease trade order against the Company’s Directors, Officers and/or Insiders instead of a cease trade order against the Company and all of its securityholders.
