Core Gold Initiates Lawsuit Against Former CEO

13.06.2019  |  GlobeNewswire

VANCOUVER, June 13, 2019 - Core Gold Inc. (“Core Gold Inc.” or the “Company”) (TSXV: CGLD, OTCQX: CGLDF) announces today that it has filed and served a Notice of Civil Action in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against its former CEO, Keith Piggott.

The lawsuit claims that Mr. Piggott misappropriated US$64,000 in corporate funds for his own use and, without board authority, in 2018 borrowed US$1,960,000 in Ecuador at annual rates of interest of between 26.06% and 30.06%, which are far higher than prevailing market rates of interest. Core Gold Inc. has suffered direct financial loss as result. In addition, Mr. Piggott has made defamatory statements against the directors of Core Gold Inc. that are intended to imply that the directors of Core Gold Inc. (other than himself) are dishonest, corrupt and acting contrary to the best interests of Core Gold Inc.. Mr. Piggott’s statements are false. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages, including punitive damages, in an amount to be assessed by the court, for the misappropriation, improvident borrowing, and defamatory statements.

As Core Gold Inc. noted in its press release of March 19, 2019, Mr. Piggott was terminated for cause as the CEO of Core Gold Inc. in March 2019 for, among other reasons, this misappropriation and improvident borrowing. Mr. Piggott has never challenged his termination for cause.

Mr. Piggott has not stated whether he intends to defend the lawsuit or not.
