Disclosure dos and don’ts: Avoiding the fatal flaws in your public reporting

Although NI 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects has been in place for over 17 years, regulatory staff at the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) and Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) continue to observe common public reporting problems that trip up exploration and mining companies.

This course, presented by technical staff from the OSC and the TSX, will pull back the curtain and discuss how disclosure reviews are conducted by securities commissions, exchanges, and IIROC. Presenters will cover both good and bad examples of public reporting by companies at various stages in the development of a mineral project from exploration to production.

The course is designed to provide qualified persons, management, and investor relations personnel with tips and advice on how to avoid the disclosure snags that may require the company to retract or issue a clarifying news release and potentially amend and refile documents.

Presenters will cover disclosure challenges with required public filings posted on SEDAR, such as material news releases, as well as voluntary reporting, such as company websites and corporate presentations. Technical report disclosure issues will focus on common problems that may cause the technical report to be amended and re-filed. New SEC rules for mining disclosure adopted in late 2018 will also be covered.

The popular question and answer session will also be hosted at the end of the course.
