The Company's common shares will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol MMG.
The Company’s upgraded listing from the OTC Pink Sheets to the OTCQB is anticipated to provide improved liquidity and, by enhancing the overall trading experience for current and potential U.S. investors, add to the Company’s shareholder base. By meeting and maintaining the stricter eligibility requirements of the OTCQB listing, Metallic Minerals benefits from Blue-Sky exemptions, certain U.S. state securities laws, which has the potential to further enhance trading volumes through an expansion of investment advisers' ability to recommend investments to their U.S. clients.
Greg Johnson, CEO and Chairman of Metallic Minerals, stated, "Uplisting our common shares is an important step in the advancement of Metallic Minerals, particularly as we have seen a marked increase in interest from U.S. precious metals investors against the backdrop of increasing silver prices over the past 1 ½ years. With a limited number of primary silver exploration opportunities, and particularly those in top North American mining jurisdictions, we are confident this new visibility will improve trading volumes and liquidity as we continue to introduce Metallic Minerals to new investors in the U.S.”
