TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - Pan American Goldfields Ltd. (the "Company") (OTCQX:MXOM), announces that a lawsuit (mercantile ordinary procedure) was filed by Corporativo Minero with the Second Civil District Court of the Morelos District, Chihuahua (the "Lawsuit"), and notified to the Company's Mexican subsidiary, Sunburst Mining De Mexico ("Sunburst") on March 21, 2014, suing Sunburst, Minera Río Tinto, S.A. de C.V. ("Río Tinto"), the Company's partner and operator in Mexico and Ejido Piedras Verdes y su anexo Cieneguilla Lluvia de Oro (the "Ejido") alleging, amongst other matters, a breach of contract following a supposed change of ownership at Corporativo Minero.
