EDM Announces Cease Trade Order and Anticipated Date of Annual Filings
Halifax, Nova Scotia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 10, 2022) - EDM Resources Inc. (TSXV: EDM) ("EDM" or the "Company") announces that on May 9, 2022, the British Columbia Securities Commission issued a cease trade order (the "CTO") against the Company for failure to file its annual audited financial statements and associated documents for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the "Required Filings") by the filing deadline of May 2, 2022. The CTO will remain in effect until the Required Filings are made, and subject to limited exceptions contained in the CTO, prohibits trades in or purchases of the Company's securities in each Canadian jurisdiction which has adopted National Instrument 11-103 Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders in Multiple Jurisdictions or which has a statutory reciprocal order provision.
The delay in completing the Required Filings by the May 2, 2022 deadline was primarily due to extended procedures conducted by the Company's auditor relating to the Scotia Mine's decommissioning liability for the period 2029 onwards. The Company anticipates that the 2021 audit will be completed shortly, and expects to make the Required Filings on or before May 13, 2022, after which the CTO will be revoked.

This news release includes certain forward-looking statements which are not comprised of historical facts. Forward-looking statements include estimates and statements that describe the Company's future plans, objectives or goals, including words to the effect that the Company or management expects a stated condition or result to occur. Forward-looking statements may be identified by such terms as "believes", "anticipates", "expects", "estimates", "may", "should", "could", "would", "will", or "plan". Since forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Although these statements are based on information currently available to the Company, the Company provides no assurance that actual results will meet management's expectations. Risks, uncertainties and other factors involved with forward-looking information could cause actual events, results, performance, prospects and opportunities to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Forward-looking information in this news release includes, but is not limited to, the Company's objectives, goals or future plans, statements, potential mineralization, exploration and development results, the estimation of mineral resources, exploration and mine development plans, timing of the commencement of operations and estimates of market conditions. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from EDM's expectations include, among others, the degree to which mineral resource and reserve estimates are reflective of actual mineral resources and reserves, the degree to which factors are present which would make a mineral deposit commercially viable, the price of zinc, lead and gypsum, uncertainties relating to availability and costs of financing needed in the future, changes in equity markets, risks related to international operations, the actual results of current exploration activities, delays in the development of projects, conclusions of economic evaluations and changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined as well as future prices of metals, ability to predict or counteract potential impact of COVID-19 coronavirus on factors relevant to the Company's business, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in EDM's management's discussion and analysis of the Company's annual financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2020. Although EDM has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factors that cause results to be not as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.
