TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Vena Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Vena") (TSX: VEM)(LMA: VEM)(FRANKFURT: V1RA)(OTCBB: VNARF) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has advised the Company that in order to maintain the listing of the common shares of the Company on the TSX, the Company must meet the TSX requirements with respect to property expenditures as required pursuant to Section 7.10(c)(i) of the TSX Company Manual. The TSX has granted Vena up to 120 days to meet the TSX requirements which require the Company to spend $350,000 in a 12 month rolling period. Given the Company's current working capital position, the Company anticipates that it will satisfy this TSX continued listing requirement.
Juan Vegarra, Vena's Chairman and CEO stated: "Given current market conditions management enforced a strict cost cutting initiative over the last 12 months, sold non-core assets and signed joint ventures. Exploration expenses were cut to around $250,000 but we failed to address a $350,000 minimum exploration expenditure requirement as highlighted by the TSX. Given our first quarter working capital position of well over $1.8 million, Vena anticipates that it will meet the TSX continued listing requirement in the timeframe allotted and will request an early TSX review to conclude the TSX continued listing review process. The Company is working on obtaining drilling permits from the Peruvian government to commence a drill program at Esquilache that it believes will more than satisfy this expenditure requirement."
