NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 3, 2018--Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), a national shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, is notifying investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Pretium Resources, Inc. (“Pretium” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PVG) and other defendants, related to alleged violations of federal securities laws.

Pretium is gold producer located in Canada.

The complaint filed alleges Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects; specifically: (1) that the Brucejack Project is not a high-grade, high-output mine; and (2) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On September 6, 2018, Viceroy Research published a report alleging, among other things, that the Company’s “reported grades and reserves are significantly inflated, a much greater amount of waste is being dumped into local lakes, and more explosives are being utilized.” The report also alleged that “management is scrambling to find consistent, high-grade ore to maintain the charade that its debt and equity are viable.”
