VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 22, 2019 — Prime Mining Corp. (TSX.V: PRYM) (OTCQB: EPWMF) (Frankfurt:04V3) (“Prime” or the “Company”) has been requested by OTC Markets Group Inc. (“OTC Markets”) to comment on recent promotional activity concerning its common shares traded on the OTCQB.
On November 20, 2019, OTC Markets sent the Company copies of articles by Epic Stockpicks (Wolf of Penny Stocks) and Penny Stock Titans (Interactive Offers). All are third party marketing and awareness firms utilized by IR Revolution Marketing Corp., which was retained by the Company to coordinate marketing materials and shareholder communications programs. The Company only became aware of the articles on November 20, 2019, following notification by OTC Markets.
The Company does not believe the statements referencing it in the articles were false or misleading. The Company has been advised by OTC Markets that OTC Markets takes the position that aspects of the statements were overly promotional. The Company wishes to caution readers that these statements are speculative in nature. For more complete and specific information regarding the Company, its prospects and the risks associated with those prospects, readers should consult the Company’s website and other reliable sources.
The Company does not believe the promotional activities were a factor in the recent increase in trading volume in the Company’s common shares on the OTCQB since November 13, 2019. Instead, the Company attributes the increase to recent volatility in the market price of gold.
Each of Andrew Bowering, Bruce Kienlen, Gregory Liller and Daniel Kunz, through Daniel Kunz & Associates LLC, all of which are directors of the Company, acquired units of the Company in connection with a private placement offering completed on August 28, 2019. Aside from these acquisitions, after an inquiry of management, none of the Company’s officers, directors, controlling shareholders or third-party service providers have sold or purchased securities of the Company in the past ninety days.
In the last twelve months, the Company has engaged the following parties to provide investor relations, public relations services, marketing or other related services: Brisco Capital Partners Corp., IR Revolution Marketing Corp., Flathead Business Solutions LLC and Flinnwest Solutions Inc. In the last twelve months, the Company has not issued any convertible instruments or securities allowing conversion to equity securities at prices constituting a discount to the current market price at the time of issuance.
