RENO, NV, May 30, 2016 /CNW/ - Hycroft Mining Corporation ("Hycroft" or the "Corporation") announces that upon application to the Ontario Securities Commission, as principal regulator, and the securities regulatory authority or regulator in each of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Québec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador and receipt of a favorable decision it is no longer a reporting issuer in Canada. Thus, Hycroft ceases to be a reporting issuer in any jurisdiction of Canada and, as a result, will no longer be required to file financial statements and other continuous disclosure documents with Canadian securities regulatory authorities.
Following Hycroft's emergence from bankruptcy in the United States, and consistent with its publicly-filed restructuring plan, Hycroft suspended its reporting obligations upon the filing of a Form 15 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on October 22, 2015 and ceased filing periodic reports in the United States with the SEC. Effective as of January 20, 2016, Hycroft's reporting obligations under United States securities laws were terminated. Hycroft continues as a privately held United States incorporated company consistent with its certificate of incorporation.
