NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 23, 2020 / Idaho Champion Gold Mines Canada Inc. (CSE:ITKO) ("Champion" or the "Company"), announces that it has filed a revised annual information form for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the "AIF"), and amended technical reports following a regulatory review of the Company's preliminary prospectus (including the documents incorporated by reference therein) and technical reports filed on July 14, 2020.
The AIF has been revised to include a statement of executive compensation for the year ended December 31, 2019, and additional disclosure with respect to directors or officers of the Company who had acted in the capacity of a director or officer of an issuer that was subject to bankruptcy (or similar proceeding) or a cease trade order (or similar proceeding) within the past ten years.
The Company has also filed an amended technical report for each of its Baner and Champagne projects, respectively entitled "NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Baner Project, Updated from the August 2018 Report" (the "Baner Report"), and "Technical Report on the Champagne Property, Arco, Idaho, U.S.A." (the "Champagne Report"), each amended as of July 21, 2020. The Baner Report has been amended to replace information about sources of information for the Baner Report previously disclosed under the heading in Section 3 - "Reliance on Other Experts" under the heading in Section 2 - "Introduction and Terms of Reference". The replacement was effected to avoid suggestions that the author of the Baner Report was "relying" on sources of information other than as permitted under the enumerated exceptions for reliance on other experts described in Section 3 of National Instrument 43-101F1 - Reliance on Other Experts.
The Champagne Report was amended to (a) remove disclosure concerning the reason the primary author of the Champagne Report could not conduct a personal inspection on the property in order to avoid suggestions about available exemptions from the current personal inspection requirements of National Instrument 43-101 in the context of the COVID-19 public health crisis; (b) include a description of data verification procedures associated with the current personal inspection undertaken by the qualified person responsible for the current personal inspection; and (c) include each authors' opinion on the adequacy of the available data for the purposes used in the Champagne Report.
This news release is issued and the re-filings of the AIF, Baner Report, and Champagne Report described above are made at the request of the staff of the Ontario Securities Commission in connection with the review conducted in connection with the filing of a short form prospectus by the Company.
Each of the AIF, Baner Report, and Champagne Report are available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.SEDAR.com.
