Request to Investigate Tahoe Resources for Failure to Disclose Material Information

Tahoe is a precious metal extraction company incorporated in British Columbia, Canada and headquartered in Reno, Nevada. It is traded on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges (TSX:THO/NYSE:TAHO). It has operated a mine in Guatemala since June 2010. In April 2015, it merged with Rio Alto Mining, which has an operating mine in Peru, and in February 2016, Tahoe announced a business combination with Lake Shore Gold Corp., which operates two mines in Ontario, Canada. This request to investigate relates to Tahoe?s ongoing operation and expansion of the Escobal mine (?El Escobal?) in Guatemala. The bulk of the information presented in this report relates to Tahoe?s failure to disclose. We raise issues related to jurisdiction, foreign private issuer status and personal liability for further investigation by the SEC.
