Montreal, Québec- April 29, 2020 (CNW) – Cerro de Pasco Resources Inc. (“CDPR” or the “Corporation”) (CSE : CDPR) (OTCMKTS : GPPRF) (Frankfurt : N8HP) (“CDPR” or the ”Company”) is postponing filing of its annual financial statements, management’s discussion and analysis for the year ended December 31, 2019 (collectively the “2019 annual documents”), due to logistics and delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. CDPR is relying on exemptive relief recently granted by Canadian securities regulatory authorities that allows it to delay the filing of its annual documents required by National Instrument 51-102 prior to April 30, 2020. In response to the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, securities regulatory authorities in Canada have granted a blanket exemption allowing issuers an additional 45 days to complete their regulatory filings. CDPR estimates that its 2019 annual documents will be available for filing at its earliest opportunity, which is expected to occur in mid-May 2020. Until such time as the 2019 annual documents are filed, CDPR’s management and other insiders are subject to a trading blackout that reflects the principles contained in section 9 of National Policy 11-207.
There have been no material business developments since the date of the last interim financial statements, filed on November 29, 2019, a copy of which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
On March 17th, 2020, Cerro de Pasco and Volcan Compañia Minera S.A.A. have agreed to extend the closure date of CDPR’s acquisition of the Cerro de Pasco Mine (the “Transaction”), until June 27th, 2020. The Company’s management continues to advance towards a successful closing.
