Pershing Gold Corporation's Resale S-1 Registration Statement Becomes Effective Permitting Continental Resources Group, Inc. To Finalize Its Dissolution

Stocks in this article: PGLC

LAKEWOOD, Colo., Feb. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pershing Gold Corporation ("Pershing") (OTCBB:PGLC) and Continental Resources Corporation ("Continental") (OTCBB:CRGC) today jointly announced that Pershing's Form S-1 Resale Registration Statement has been declared effective by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The Registration Statement satisfies a condition allowing for the dissolution of Continental.

Continental has held Pershing shares since July 2011, when Pershing acquired the business and assets of Continental via an asset purchase of substantially all of the assets of Continental in exchange for shares of Pershing common stock equal to a ratio of eight shares for every ten shares of Continental's common stock outstanding.

Consequently, Continental was a controlling shareholder of Pershing from July 2011 through December 31, 2011 and continues to hold significant share ownership. As a result of the effectiveness of the Form S-1 Registration Statement, Continental is planning to proceed with its plan of liquidation, including the distribution of Pershing shares, on a pro rata basis to Continental shareholders as of a record date set by Continental. Continental expects to complete the distribution as soon as practicable. 

Neither Pershing nor Continental are issuing any new share capital via this Registration Statement and will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the registered shares.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to issue or sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
