VANCOUVER, Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ - American CuMo Mining Corporation ("CuMoCo" or the "Company") (TSXV: MLY;OTCQX: MLYCF) is pleased to announce the Company has reached out of court settlements with the previous management in the various suits filed by the Company and by previous management. No details of the settlements will be released.
Shaun Dykes, President and CEO, stated "the settlements allow the Company to move forward without the distractions of these legal actions, which would have taken years and substantial funds to resolve".
CuMoCo also announces that it will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Tuesday February 27, 2015 at 10 am PST at a location to be announced. The Company had received approval last year to postpone its AGM, usually held in December, given the Company held a special extraordinary meeting in late July of 2014. The extra time allows any potential financing arrangements that would require shareholder approval to be included in the agenda.
Regarding the adjourned hearing announced August 6, 2014 in which International Energy Mines and Resources (IEMR (HK)) seeks to appoint a receiver-manager for CuMoCo, the court has set a two day hearing for January 27, 2015 to hear the case. Given that all interest payments on the IEMR (HK) debentures have been made, the Company is confident that it is in a strong position and that the suit is without cause or merit. CuMoCo has sought legal advice in both Canada and the USA with regards to this lawsuit in order to defend itself and to investigate all of its options. IEMR (HK) filed this suit the same day the voting results were revealed at the shareholder-requisitioned general meeting held on July 22, 2014. Mr. Hongxue Fu, ex-chairman, ex-president, currently a director of the Company, and his wife control and co-own IEMR (HK).
The Company has completed its plans for the CuMo Project 2015 programs that include the following: an updated 43-101 compliant resource calculation (14 holes have been drilled since the previous calculation reported in July 2012); the next round of metallurgical testing focused on the grinding analysis of the mine material; an updated Preliminary Economic Analysis to update the previous report completed by Ausenco in 2009; a diamond drilling program; and the start of environmental baseline work. Discussions with funding partners have resumed following the holiday season.
CuMoCo is focused on advancing its CuMo Project towards feasibility and establishing itself as one of the largest and lowest-cost molybdenum producers in the world as well as a significant producer of copper and silver. Management is continuing to build a strong foundation from which to move the Company and the CuMo Project forward. For more information, please visit www.cumoco.com and www.cumoproject.com
