VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Squire Mining Ltd. (CSE:SQR | FWB:9SQ | OTCQB:SQRMF) (the “Company”) announced that it has been informed by its hosting provider in Kazakhstan that the facilities housing the Company’s cloud computing fleet will undergo temporary power black-outs.The black-outs are the result of the hosting provider’s power supplier undertaking a necessary upgrade in the substation transformer supplying power to the facility. The upgrades are being carried out to address reliability issues prior to the upcoming winter season.  The Company’s hosting provider has advised that the outage is expected to last between 10 and 14 days.  During this time, some of the Company’s cloud computing fleet located in Kazakhstan will be non-operational and non-profitable for periods but will also accrue proportionally lower electricity costs during such times.

The Company is working with its hosting provider to minimize impact to its operations.
