CALGARY, AB, June 25, 2020 /CNW/ - The Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) has issued a Notice of Hearing alleging that Saint Jean Carbon Inc. and its CEO, Paul Anthony Ogilvie (Ogilvie) made misleading statements that would reasonably be expected to have a significant effect on the market price or value of Saint Jean Carbon's securities.

The allegations have not been proven.
An appearance to set a date for a hearing will be held on August 12, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.

The Interim Order prohibits all trading in the securities of Saint Jean Carbon Inc. by the reporting insiders. The Interim Order was extended on April 4, 2017 and remains in effect until the proceedings commenced by the Notice of Hearing are concluded.
