Gold Reserve Inc. Announces NYSE MKT Notification Of Intent To File Delisting Application

Stocks in this article: GRZ

Gold Reserve Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GRZ) (NYSE-MKT:GRZ) has received a written notice dated January 3, 2013, that the staff of the NYSE MKT LLC (the “Exchange”) intends to file a delisting application with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to remove the Company's common shares from being listed on the Exchange. The Company intends to appeal the Exchange staff’s decision.

The Exchange staff's position is that the Company did not sufficiently comply with the terms of its plan announced October 31, 2011 (the “Plan”), that was implemented to allow the Company time to regain compliance with the Exchange’s continued listing standards by December 20, 2012. As a result, the Exchange staff believes the Company no longer complies with the Exchange’s continued listing standards because, following the seizure of the Las Brisas mine by the Venezuelan government in 2008, the Company ceased to be an “operating company” under Sections 1002(c) and 1003(c)(i) of the Exchange’s Company Guide and did not remedy that status pursuant to the Plan.

The terms of the Plan focused on the Company becoming an “operating company” again, as defined by the Exchange staff. Management believes that the Company has demonstrated substantial compliance with the intent and spirit of the Plan to become an “operating company” by signing an agreement effective April 26, 2012, granting the Company the right to earn an undivided 51% interest in the La Tortuga property, a copper and gold prospect located in Jalisco State, Mexico, and conducting exploration activities at the La Tortuga property. Additionally, management believes the Company meets all other continued listing standards of the Exchange and, as of market close on January 3, 2012, the Company currently meets all the standards for initial listing under Initial Listing Standard 4 (Section 103(d) of the Company Guide).

The Company expects to appeal the Exchange staff’s decision by January 10, 2013, and will request an oral hearing before a committee of the Exchange to be held at a later date. There can be no assurances that the Company’s request for continued listing will be granted. During the appeal period the Company’s shares will continue to be listed for trading on the Exchange and will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange.
