Commences Trading on OTCQX
This important step in the growth aspirations for the Company follows on from the significant interest shown by North American Investors in White Rock's recent equity raising1 and trading on the ASX since. This step is part of White Rock's strategy to raise awareness of the Company's high-grade silver - zinc - gold - lead VMS and gold IRGS project at Red Mountain in central Alaska, USA, of natural interest to many North American investors.
The OTCQX Best Market provides value and convenience to U.S. investors, brokers and institutions seeking to trade WRMCF. The OTCQX Best Market is OTC Markets Group's premier market for established, investor-focused U.S. and international companies. To be eligible, companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance, demonstrate compliance with U.S. securities laws, be current in their disclosure, and have a professional third-party sponsor introduction.
The OTCQX Market aims to provide current and potential North American investors with appropriate accessibility and liquidity to invest in the Company. The OTCQX Market provides White Rock access to one of the largest investment markets in the world at nominal cost, with no additional compliance requirements, compared to traditional major exchanges.
Existing ordinary shares of White Rock will be traded on the OTCQX Market and North American investors will be able to find real-time Level 2 quotes and market information on the otcmarkets.com website under the symbol "WRMCF".
Three key advantages for North American investors are:
1) Trades and settlements are in US Dollars (USD),
2) Trading in the North American time zone; and
3) The OTCQX share is the same class of Ordinary Share to ASX traded stock (ASX:WRM), not a synthetic. The shares are simply registered in two different Registries.
Cross-trading will assist the North American investor to participate in the White Rock story, especially as it progresses with its current exploration program at its large IRGS gold anomaly at the Last Chance Prospect in Alaska.
