Other Events; Coronavirus Update

 

On March 4, 2020 and March 25, 2020, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) issued orders under Section 36 (Release No. 34-88318) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) granting exemptions from specified provisions of the Exchange Act and certain rules thereunder (the “Order”). The Order provides that a registrant (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 12b-2) subject to the reporting requirements of Exchange Act Section 13(a) or 15(d), and any person required to make any filings with respect to such a registrant, is exempt from any requirement to file or furnish materials with the Commission under Exchange Act Sections 13(a), 13(f), 13(g), 14(a), 14(c), 14(f), 15(d) and Regulations 13A, Regulation 13D-G (except for those provisions mandating the filing of Schedule 13D or amendments to Schedule 13D), 14A, 14C and 15D, and Exchange Act Rules 13f-1, and 14f-1, as applicable, where certain conditions are satisfied.

 

Tombstone Exploration Corporation (the “Company”), is furnishing this current report on Form 6-K to indicate its reliance on the Order in connection with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2019 as a result of the circumstances set forth below.

 

The Company’s headquarters and a significant portion of its business operations are located in areas of the United States currently on “lock-down” orders or “shelter in place” recommendations for the national health crisis, including key personnel responsible for assisting the Company in the development of its financial statements. As a result of the travel and work restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company is unable to obtain financial records that it needs to permit the Company to file a timely and accurate Annual Report on Form 20-F for its year ended December 31, 2019 by the prescribed date without undue hardship and expense to the Company. The Company will file its Annual Report as soon as practicably possible.
