The Staff Notice reminds mining issuers that investor presentations and other information found on an issuer's website constitute "written disclosure" for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101) and, therefore, must comply with NI 43-101's disclosure requirements as well as the forward looking information (FLI) requirements of National Instrument 51-102 - Continuous Disclosure Obligations. The Staff Notice also suggests ways to improve compliance in designing investor presentations and websites to meet disclosure obligations.
