James Bay Resources Limited Announces Legal Action Commenced Under Secured Loan Made to California-based Cannabis Vaping Company

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 30, 2019) - James Bay Resources Limited (CSE: JBR) ("James Bay" or the "Company") announced today that it has commenced legal proceedings in the State of California to recover overdue amounts owed pursuant to a secured loan agreement (the "Secured Loan Agreement") with CB Holding Group Corp., a California-based company (the "Borrower") involved in arranging both CBD and THC vape pens for sale to licensed distributors (see previous disclosure from James Bay about the Secured Loan Agreement made December 21, 2018). The legal proceeding is also commenced against companies related to the Borrower (collectively, the "Borrowers"), along with David Bunevacz, a consultant of the Borrower, Mary Hayca Bunevacz, an executive and major shareholder of the Borrower, and 2 individuals who personally guaranteed the obligations of the Borrowers. The legal action involves filing a Complaint with the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, fraud, recovery of possession of personal property, and appointment of a receiver.

Under the terms of the Secured Loan Agreement, James Bay advanced in aggregate US$3.5 million to the Borrower (the "Secured Loan"), with the Secured Loan plus all accrued and unpaid interest repayable on the six-month anniversary of advancing the funds (the "Maturity Date"). The Secured Loan is fully secured by all of the assets, undertaking and business of the Borrowers, and personally guaranteed by Mary Hayca Bunevacz along with 2 other individuals associated with the Borrowers. Up to and since the Maturity Date, James Bay had been working with the Borrower and its management in attempts to sell various inventory and receive payment of its Secured Loan, but those efforts have proven fruitless. With interest and expenses, the total amount currently outstanding under the Secured Loan Agreement is approximately US$4.3 million, all of which is being claimed by James Bay in the legal proceedings.
