Pretium Resources announces that its board has adopted an Advance Notice Policy. The purpose of the Policy is to provide Pretivm's shareholders, directors and management with a clear framework for nominating persons for election as directors of the company. The Policy has been adopted in order to facilitate an orderly and efficient annual general or, where the need arises, special meeting, to provide all shareholders with adequate notice of director nominations and sufficient information with respect to all nominees, and allow shareholders to register an informed vote having been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation. Among other things, the Policy fixes a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of Pretivm must submit director nominations to the company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders and sets forth the specific information that a shareholder must include in the written notice for an effective nomination to occur. No person will be eligible for election as a director of the company unless nominated in accordance with the provisions of the Policy.
