Vancouver, B.C. / ACCESSWIRE / April 30, 2014 / Pan American Fertilizer Corp. (TSX.V: PFE, Frankfurt: 6GF) (the "Company" or "Pan American") announces that the Company will be delayed in filing the fiscal 2013 audited financial statements and management's discussion and analysis (collectively, the "2013 Annual Audited Financial Statements") and as a result not meet the filing deadline of April 30, 2014 as prescribed by National Instrument 51-102 - Continuous Disclosure Obligations ("NI 51-102").
The delay in filing the Disclosure Documents is primarily the result of additional time required by the Company's auditors to complete the 2013 Audited Financial Statements owing to the heightened activity of the Company during the period, including the business combination between Pan American Fertilizer Corp. and Golden Fame Resources Corp. and increased operations in Argentina with additional customers. The Company is working expeditiously with the Company's auditors and making every effort to make the required filings in a timely fashion. The Company expects to complete and file its 2013 Annual Audited Financial Statements before the end of May 2014.
Until Pan American completes the filing of the 2013 Annual Audited Financial Statements, Pan American will comply with the alternative information guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203 - Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults for issuers who have failed to comply with a specified continuous disclosure requirement within the times prescribed by applicable securities laws. The guidelines, among other things, require Pan American to issue bi-weekly default status reports by way of a news release so long as the 2013 Annual Audited Financial Statements have not been filed.
The Company is not involved in any insolvency proceedings. There is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
About Pan American Fertilizer Corp.
Pan American is a Canadian company dedicated to providing fertilizer to growing global markets specifically in South and Central America. The company is focused on the extraction of a specific type of fertilizer called calcium sulphate (also referred to as "Agricultural Gypsum") currently in Argentina. To ensure long term development and increase shareholder value, Pan American currently plans to significantly expand its current operational objectives while expanding its asset base by acquiring additional calcium sulphate and other fertilizer related assets and by expanding its markets to countries neighbouring Argentina.
The Calcium Sulphate project is a unique project, for the following reasons:
1)Its high grade calcium sulphate (CaSO4) rock outcrops and is fully permitted and in operations via conventional extraction methods with secured mining rights for 20 years with right to extend for another 20 years, allowing for scalable operations;
2)It is strategically located in close proximity to the well-known "Nucleus Agricultural Zones" of South America where the majority of the continents important and dynamic agribusiness activity is located;
3)It connects to Paraguay and Brazil's largest fertilizer distribution districts via existing and high quality infrastructure;
4)It has the potential to supply CaSO4 to South America's agriculture market from its large calcium sulphate-rich deposit.
When used as a fertilizer and as a soil remediator, calcium sulphate is a soft sulphate mineral composed of calcium sulphate dihydrate (CaSO4o2H2O) which is extremely rich in sulphur and calcium. When dissolved in water, the mineral becomes calcium and sulphate sulphur ions, both of which are required nutrients for plants. Calcium Sulphate plays a vital role in establishing and maintaining good chemical balance in soil, water and plants, specifically with healthy root development. Ultimately, calcium sulphate increases overall crop quality and yields. For more information please look at our website www.PAFertilzer.com
