October 13, 2020
Kelowna, B.C. October 13, 2020 – Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V.DMI / OTCQB-DMIFF), (the “Company”) is providing this bi-weekly default status report in accordance with National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203").
On September 9, 2020 the Company announced (the “Default Notice”) that it had filed an application with the British Columbia Securities Commission and the Alberta Securities Commission under NP 12-203, requesting that a temporary management cease trade order (“MCTO”) be granted in respect of the anticipated late filing of the Company’s audited financial statements and corresponding management’s discussion and analysis for the year ended March 31, 2020 (the “Annual Filings”). Due to ongoing delays in South Africa related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company was unable to file Annual Filings 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 MCTO was granted September 15, 2020.
The Company confirms that, except as set forth below, since the date of the previous Default Notice issued on September 29, 2020: (i) there has been no material change to the information set out in the Default Notice that has not been generally disclosed; (ii) there has been no failure by the Company in fulfilling its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in NP 12-203; (iii) there has not been any other specified default by the Company under NP 12-203; and (iv) there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
The Company confirms that its directors, officers and insiders cannot trade the Company’s securities until the Annual Filings have been made.
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 MCTO stipulated that the Annual Filings were to be filed by no later than October 14, 2020 and the Company will be in a position to file the Annual Filings on time. Immediately following the filing of the Annual Filings, the Company will then file the Interim Financial Statements and MD&A for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 at which time the Company will be current in its required filings. The Company confirms that it will comply with the alternative information guidelines included in NP 12-203, for so long as it remains in default of a specified requirement.
