Pretium engages in the acquisition, exploration and development of precious metal resource properties in the Americas. One of the Company's main mineral resource projects is an advanced stage gold-silver exploration project focused on exploration of mineral reserves in the Valley of Kings ("VOK") zone in northwestern British Columbia. Pretium engaged Strathcona Mineral Services Ltd. as independent "Qualified Persons" to oversee the Valley of the Kings bulk sample program and prepare a report at the conclusion of the project concerning mineral resource estimates.

The Complaint alleges that the defendants misrepresented or failed to disclose that:

  • The mineral resources, potential mineral reserves and potential gold production in the VOK zone were exaggerated.
  • The Company's sampling methodology for the Valley of the Kings Bulk Sample Program was unreliable and misleading.

On October 22, 2013, Pretium announced the withdrawal of Strathcona from the Valley of the Kings Bulk Sample Program before any results from the processing of the bulk sample were available. According to the Company, Strathcona also advised Pretium that statements included in all recent press releases by Pretium about probable mineral reserves and future gold production from the Valley of the Kings zone over a 22-year mine life are "erroneous and misleading."
