The initial Panel made a declaration of unacceptable circumstances on 1 February 2018 (see TP18/06) which the review Panel varied on 2 March 2018 (see TP18/18). The review Panel affirmed (see TP18/18) the initial Panel’s final orders (see TP18/12) but later varied those orders (see TP18/25 and TP18/27).
The review Panel has now made a fourth variation of the final orders (Annexure A) in response to a request by Strategic Minerals for a further extension. The Panel was only willing to grant an extension because both ASIC and Ms Oma (the applicant in Strategic Minerals Corporation NL 01) supported the Panel doing so.
The effect of the fourth variation is to vary Order 7 to read:
“Within 2 business days after ASIC gives notice to Strategic Minerals that the supplementary target's statement may be dispatched, Strategic Minerals must send a copy of a supplementary target's statement (containing the revised independent expert's report and the revised independent technical expert's report) to the ASX and QGold, lodge it with ASIC and send it to each holder of Strategic Minerals shares (other than QGold).”
