WEST KELOWNA, British Columbia, March 23, 2018 - Colorado Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:CXO) (“Colorado” or the “Company”) announces that Mr. Carl Hering has resigned as a director of the Company. The Board would like to thank Mr. Hering for his valuable contribution to the Company over the years.
In a news release dated March 22, 2018, Mr. Adam Travis, the terminated CEO and President of the Company who has launched a needless and distracting proxy fight, refers to Mr. Hering as an “independent director”. This statement demonstrates how Mr. Travis, after having been a director of the Company for eight years, still has little understanding of corporate governance.
Mr. Hering was not independent. The Company’s Information Circular for the Annual General Meeting, to be held on April 17, 2018 (the “AGM”), clearly indicates that Mr. Hering was paid consulting fees for corporate and technical assistance at rates varying from $750 - $900 per diem effective February 2016, under the time Mr. Travis, his former co-worker at another company, was CEO. During the 2017 fiscal year, Mr. Hering received $95,550 as a consultant to the Company, which under securities regulations and TSXV policy means he was not independent.
Mr. Hering, in several discussions regarding future management and director nominees, indicated he would likely resign and not go forward as he would then be able to focus on the Company’s Green Springs property in Nevada. As an experienced professional, Mr. Hering has also recognized and expressed deep concern about the serious shortcomings of Mr. Travis. In January of 2017, Mr. Hering wrote, after a dispute with Travis:
“It would be excusable if this were the first time a similar situation occurred where Adam chose to ignore Board recommendations. However, it is about the 10th”, and
“…he has no issue with spending excess monies to satisfy what he thinks the brokers or bloggers want, not what the Directors recommend.”
This is the same Mr. Travis who now claims that he alone can restore good corporate governance to the Company. What Mr. Travis wants is to install his handpicked nominees on the Board so he can continue to treat your company as his own.
