VANCOUVER, Feb. 11, 2021 - St. James Gold Corp.
(TSX-V: LORD) (OTCQB: LRDJF) (FSE: BVU3), the "Company" is pleased to announce that it has received approval to begin trading on the OTCQB Venture Market ("OTCQB") under the symbol "LRDJF," effective as of the open of trading on February 11, 2021.
The OTCQB offers developing Canadian companies the benefits of being publicly traded in the U.S. with lower cost and complexity than a U.S. exchange listing. Streamlined market standards enable Canadian companies to provide a strong baseline of transparency to inform and engage U.S. investors. To be eligible, Canadian companies must be current in their SEDAR reporting and undergo an annual verification and management certification process.
As commented by George Drazenovic, CEO of St. James Gold Corp., "With rising gold prices, increased investor interest in gold equities, and our recent acquisitions in Newfoundland, we believe this is the ideal time for St. James Gold Corp. to introduce the Company to a broader audience of retail and institutional investors in the US market. Trading on the OTCQB is an important landmark for the Company, and its timing coincides well as we move our exploration projects forward following the recent receipt of 2 NI 43-101 reports, and seeking out additional high value gold assets in North America."
As a verified market with efficient access to U.S. investors, the OTCQB helps Canadian companies build shareholder value with a goal of enhancing liquidity and achieving fair valuation.
OTCQB companies provide current company information and meet financial standards that enable brokers to more easily quote and trade a security. Companies engage a far greater network of U.S. investors, data distributors and media partners, ensuring U.S. investors have access to the same high-quality information that is available to investors in Canada, but through U.S. platforms and portals to conduct research. Real-time quotes and market information for the Company can be found at https://www.otcmarkets.com.
In addition to the OTCQB listing, there will be no change of trading symbols under the TSX-Venture Exchange symbol "LORD" nor the Frankfurt Stock Exchange symbol "BVU3".
