LONGUEUIL, CANADA--(Marketwired - July 28, 2015) - Reunion Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:RGD) (the "Company") announces that it has filed its audited consolidated financial statements and management's discussion and analysis (MD&A) for the year ended March 31, 2015 on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
The Company's Matthews Ridge manganese project is currently on care and maintenance while the Company is evaluating different financing options, including the sale of certain assets, joint venture or other arrangement. Given the recent economic slowdown in Asia and other parts of the world, the demand for steel and related products including manganese has dropped significantly. This, and other economic factors, has had a direct impact on the market price of manganese and, combined with a depressed equity market for junior mining companies, makes it difficult to finance the development of manganese projects. The Company's priorities for the current financial year is to secure an extension of its Matthews Ridge prospecting licences, and complete a financing to settle its working capital deficit and fund ongoing obligations.
The Company also announces that it will hold its annual general and special meeting of shareholders (the "AGM") on September 30, 2015. The record date for shareholders entitled to vote at the AGM is August 14, 2015.
