Meetings with four EPC companies scheduled for the week of the 16th of February with the Company’s Chairman John Darch, Director of Finance, Neil Maedel and Sonoro’s representative in China, Dr. Wei Qian, have been postponed. Two of the four EPC companies scheduled to meet with Sonoro have suspended operations due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Company officials with the other two EPC companies are continuing discussions with Sonoro, albeit from their respective residences as offices remain closed. Rescheduling of these meetings is subject to Chinese authorities lifting travel restrictions within China. Sonoro’s representative in China, Dr. Wei, continues to maintain an active dialogue with the Senior Executives and Project Directors-Managers of each EPC company in order to advance these discussions until the meetings can be rescheduled. The principal focus of these meetings is to finalize details on three outstanding Memorandum of Understandings yet to be executed as well as to confirm upcoming site visits to Cerro Caliche. On January 13th, 2020, Sonoro and one EPC company executed a Memorandum of Understanding regarding project debt financing and EPC services for the development and operation of Sonoro’s proposed Cerro Caliche Pilot Project.
