Concerned shareholders respond to management allegations and urge Maudore shareholders to vote the YELLOW proxy
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – July 10, 2012) – The Concerned Shareholders of Maudore Minerals Ltd. ("Maudore") wish to note their disappointment with the last minute court action launched by the company's existing management and board. "This is another example of the unjustifiable tactics that have been used to attempt to entrench management and is a last ditch effort to prevent shareholders from voting freely for the directors of their choice," said Rex Harbour on behalf of the Concerned Shareholders. "There is no foundation to the allegations and the Concerned Shareholders will respond vigorously in court in order to protect your right to vote."
"The Concerned Shareholders are of the firm view that change is needed at Maudore and this latest management manoeuvre will not change this. We stand by our strong belief that the current management lacks the technical understanding and drive needed to bring Comtois to production. We urge all shareholders to read our circular and our 100 Day Action Plan objectively and compare it against management's continued empty promises."
The Concerned Shareholders, consisting of Rex Harbour, The Harbour Foundation and City Securities Limited, holders of approximately 18.4% of Maudore shares, remind fellow shareholders that YELLOW proxies must be submitted as soon as possible in order to effect the management change that is essential to the future of Maudore.
