NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR TO US WIRE SERVICES
- Rogue Stone has continued its temporary suspension of quarry operations at its Bobcaygeon and Orillia quarries, in line with the continuing guidance from the government of Ontario
- The Company intends to reopen in time to supply to the Ontario and US markets, once guidance changes.
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / April 7, 2020 / Rogue Resources Inc. (TSXV:RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) sent the below note to shareholders, from Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue Resources-
I wanted to update you all on what is happening with your company through this very challenging time.
At Rogue, we remain focused on the health and safety of our teams and continue to practice physical distancing throughout the company. Management continues to work remotely and we have been in very regular and consistent contact with our operators (who remain safe at home with their families), our customers, investors and creditors.
The COVID-19 virus has been especially impactful on our community near the Bobcaygeon quarry, with a local long-term care residence becoming a tragic hotspot. It is a small community and it has been a massive impact, reaching across and into our local team. Our group remains focused on returning though and we are prepared to restart operations as soon as we have clarity around the government guidance changing in Ontario and our US markets.
Rogue Stone, at both the Bobcaygeon and Orillia quarries, can reopen with normal business operations while following the current public health recommendations around physical distancing.
In addition to navigating our restart timing with customers, Rogue continues to be in very regular contact with our suppliers and our group of lenders, all of whom are trying to understand their own businesses’ paths forward.
I continue to extend my best wishes during this monumentally challenging time and encourage you to contact me with any questions about your Company.
