VANCOUVER, Nov. 5 /CNW/ - Further to its press release of October 19, 2009, New Guinea Gold Corporation (TSX-V:NGG) ("the Company") announces that, based on the advice of special counsel, the Company's Board of Directors have determined that the recent demand made by dissident shareholders for the calling of a general meeting of the Company is invalid, in that the requisition notice does not satisfy the mandatory requirements of section 167 of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) ("Act"). Accordingly, the dissidents' representatives have today been advised by the Company that the Board will not be calling a shareholders meeting in response to the requisition.
