BEAR CREEK MINING COMMENCES TRADING ON THE OTCQX MARKET IN THE U.S.
September 20, 2019, Vancouver, B.C. - Bear Creek Mining Corporation (“Bear Creek” or the “Company”) (TSXV: BCM) (BVL: BCM) (OTCQX: BCEKF) is pleased to announce it has qualified for trading on the OTCQX® Best Market in the United States operated by OTC Markets Group Inc. The Company’s common shares commence trading today on the OTCQX Market.
Bear Creek Mining, which previously traded on the Pink market in the U.S., is now one of the roughly 190 Canadian companies that cross-trade on the OTCQX Market. While the Company will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange and the Bolsa de Valores de Lima under the symbol “BCM”, investors will now also have the opportunity to trade the Company’s shares under the symbol “BCEKF” on the OTCQX. OTCQX is a United States trading platform that facilitates trading for online, retail and institutional investors.
McMillan LLP acted as the Company’s third-party professional sponsor in respect of its OTCQX application.
Tony Hawkshaw, President and CEO of Bear Creek comments, “Owing to the OTCQX’s higher qualification criteria and ongoing disclosure requirements, we believe Bear Creek’s upgrade will provide the Company with the opportunity to enhance its visibility, expand its shareholder base and increase its liquidity, without the cost and regulatory duplication associated with a U.S. exchange listing. We look forward to the opportunities to enhance shareholder value we anticipate will result from this upgrade.”
