TORONTO, May 27 /CNW/ - Coalcorp Mining Inc. ("Coalcorp" or the "Company") (TSX-CCJ) is providing its seventeenth Default Status Report in accordance with National Policy 12-203: Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("NP 12-203"). On September 16, 2009, the Company announced that it would be delayed in the filing of its annual financial statements and related MD&A for the financial year ended June 30, 2009 (the "Annual Financials") and 2009 Annual Information Form beyond their filing deadlines of September 28, 2009. On May 19, 2010, the Company announced that it would be delayed in the filing of its third quarter interim financial statements and related management discussion and analysis (MD&A) for the three and nine month periods ended March 31, 2010 (the "Q3 Financials") beyond the filing deadline of May 15, 2010. Coalcorp has since filed its Annual Financials and its 2009 Annual Information Form.
On October 19, 2009, the Ontario Securities Commission (the "OSC") issued a management cease trade order related to the Company's securities against the Chief Executive Officer of the Company with respect to the delayed filing of the Annual Financials and 2009 Annual Information Form. The management cease trade order will remain in effect for so long as the Q3 Financials are not filed. The issuance of such management cease trade order does not affect the ability of persons to trade in their securities of Coalcorp, other than the Chief Executive Officer. However, the OSC, in its discretion, may determine at a later time that it would be appropriate to issue a general issuer cease trade order affecting all of the Company's securities.
