Equity Metals Corporation (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received approval to begin trading its common shares on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB Venture Market in the United States under the symbol “EQMEF”. The Company’s common shares will begin trading on the OTCQB Marketplace on June 17th, 2020 and will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “EQTY”.
The OTCQB is recognized as an established public financial market for international companies, including natural resource companies in the exploration industry, to trade in the U.S. The OTCQB Venture Market offers companies the opportunity to build their visibility, expand their liquidity and diversify their shareholder base on an established, public market. The OTCQB offers transparent trading in early stage, exploration companies and provides annual verification and certification of management to investors thereby improving their level of information and trading experience.
Lawrence Page, Q.C., Equity Metals Chairman and Director, stated, “We are pleased to be listed on the OTCQB, as this provides an opportunity to attract a broader base of international investors. Trading on the OTCQB will expand the company’s presence to new and existing shareholders in the United States with a transparent trading platform. Admission to the OTCQB exchange is part of our strategy to introduce the company to a wide range of institutional and retail investors in the United States, particularly as we prepare our Silver Queen gold property for drilling this summer.”
