Vancouver, BC – April 10, 2018 – Copper Creek Gold Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX‐V: CPV; OTCQB:CKVLF) is pleased to announce that it has secured DTC eligibility by The Depository Trust Company for its shares traded on the OTCQB “CKVLF” effective April 9, 2018.
The DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (“DTCC”) and manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered “DTC eligible.” This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors and brokers, enabling the stock to be traded over a much wider selection of brokerage firms by coming into compliance with their requirements.
Being DTC eligible is expected to greatly simplify the process of trading and exchange the Company’s common stock on the OTC marketplace in the United States.
“We are pleased to have obtained DTC eligibility,” said Tim Fernback, Director. “DTC eligibility simplifies the process of trading and transferring Copper Creek’s shares between brokerages in the United States and reduces the costs incurred in trading shares. With our shares now DTC eligible, we expect this to lead to greater liquidity and execution speeds, as well as our shares being accessible to an even broader range of investors.”
The Company also announces it has been approved and its common shares have been upgraded to the OTCQB® Venture Market under the trading symbol “CKVLF
