The Company has been asked to issue this release by OTC Markets to comment on certain continued promotional activities beginning on or around January 29, 2019. The Company became aware of certain continued promotional activity relating to its securities on January 30, 2019 upon receipt of correspondence from OTC Markets specifically related to certain promotional literature encouraging investors to purchase the Company's common shares and making certain statements regarding the potential returns on such investment, including certain promotional newsletter emails. Until being informed by OTC Markets of the promotional material, the Company was unaware of the promotional activity and remains unaware of the full nature of the promotional activity and the extent of the dissemination. Trading volumes have increased over the past few trading sessions; however, it is difficult to determine what impact the promotional materials have had on the trading activity in the Company’s common shares. Upon reviewing the content of the material, it appears that certain of the statements and claims made were taken from the Company’s website, historical press releases and other public documents, but the Company had no editorial control over the content of the material. Furthermore, there are statements made which encourage investors to purchase the common shares of the Company, which only express the view of the authors and the Company disclaims any potentially exaggerated or misleading statements contained in the material. In addition, the Company has determined that certain statements included in these publications related to the Company and its business might be read as misleading and/or incomplete and readers should not place undue reliance on these newsletters or websites. Specifically, the Company does not condone the use of sensational language to describe the Company’s business prospects or the growth potential of the Company’s industry. The Company does not condone any statements made regarding the urgency of investing in the Company’s common shares or any other similar statements. Finally, the Company notes that investing in the Company’s securities involves certain risks and uncertainties which investors should review prior to making any investment decision. The Company encourages all investors to undertake proper due diligence and carefully consider all investment decisions. The Company directs potential investors to rely solely on its filings and disclosures made with Canadian securities regulators, available at www.sedar.com and as posted on the filings and disclosure page for MRRCF on the OTC Markets website at www.otcmarkets.com.
To the Company's knowledge, after due inquiry of management, neither the Company, nor any of its officers, directors, or any third-party service providers have directly been involved with the creation or distribution of promotional newsletter emails or websites that make exaggerated or misleading claims related to the Company and its securities.
