CALGARY, Dec. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - The Alberta Securities Commission (ASC)
has concluded a settlement agreement with Rogers Gold Corp. relating to
allegations of the illegal distribution of Rogers Gold securities.
Under the Settlement Agreement, Rogers Gold admitted to breaching
Alberta securities laws by distributing securities without filing a
prospectus and without an applicable prospectus exemption. Rogers Gold
agreed to permanently refrain from using any of the prospectus or
registration exemptions available under Alberta securities laws.
In September 2013, former Rogers Gold President Brian Kirkham entered
into a settlement with the ASC regarding the illegal distributions by
Rogers Gold. In October 2013, an ASC panel ruled that former Rogers
Gold principals John Dale Rogers, Robert Harold Keenan and Charles
(Chad) Mitchell breached Alberta securities laws, in part for their
role in the illegal distribution of Rogers Gold securities.
A copy of the Rogers Gold Settlement Agreement, the Kirkham Settlement Agreement and the Rogers, Keenan, Mitchell decision can be found on the ASC website at www.albertasecurities.com.
