CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/14 -- Westcore Energy Ltd. ("Westcore" or the "Copmany") (TSX VENTURE:WTR) announces the filing of its annual audited financial statements as at and for the year ended December 31, 2013. In connection with such statements, the Company determined that as of December 31, 2013, there were indicators of impairment for its coal Exploration and Evaluation Assets. The indicators of impairment result from the current lack of investor interest in coal companies, downturn in the mining industry in particular, and the Company's decision to significantly reduce future exploration expenditures until equity market conditions improve. As a result, the Company has recorded an impairment write-off of $7,125,490. After giving effect to this write-off, the Company's coal assets have been valued at $1,985,676 as at December 31, 2013.
