Vancouver, B.C. – Starcore International Mines Ltd. (TSX: SAM) (“Starcore” or “the Company”) today announced that it will voluntarily file a Form 15F with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to terminate the registration of its common shares under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and its corresponding reporting obligations under Section 13(a) of the Exchange Act.
Management of the Company is of the view that the costs associated with continuing the registration and reporting under the Exchange Act outweigh the benefits received by the Company from maintaining its registration.
The termination will become effective 90 days after the date of filing of the Form 15F with the SEC, or within such shorter period as the SEC may determine. Upon filling of the Form 15F, the Company’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act will be immediately suspended.
The filing with the SEC and termination of mandatory U.S. public reporting obligations will have no impact on the Company’s Canadian public reporting obligations and the Company’s shares will continue to trade on the TSX under the ticker symbol “SAM”. Company filings with Canadian securities regulators will continue to be made and will be available on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com.
Starcore International Mines is engaged in precious metals production with focus and experience in Mexico. This base of producing assets is complemented by exploration and development projects throughout North America. The company is a leader in Corporate Social Responsibility and advocates value driven decisions that will increase long term shareholder value.
