PureGold Learns of Notice of Civil Claim and Denies AllegationsApril 7, 2022
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 7, 2022 — Pure Gold Mining Inc. (TSX-V:PGM, LSE:PUR) (“PureGold” or the “Company”) today announces that the Company has learned of notice of civil claim naming PureGold and certain other parties as defendants in the British Columbia Supreme Court alleging failures to disclose certain information relating to its operations at its mine in Red Lake, Ontario under Canadian securities laws (the “Action”). In the Action, the plaintiff seeks certification as a class proceeding and with any other class members claims unspecied damages for losses incurred in their investments in the Company. Although no assurance can be given with respect to the ultimate outcome of the Action, the Company believes that the complaint against it is unfounded and without merit, and it intends to vigourously defend the proceeding.
