October 29, 2020 – Toronto, Ontario – An application for trading in the United States on the OTCQB Venture Market and in conjunction, DTC eligibility is being applied for, said Palladium One Mining Inc. (TSX-V: PDM, FRA: 7N11, OTC: NKORF) (the "Company" or “Palladium One”).
“Providing broader and more efficient access for US investors to participate in our recent discovery success, will enhance our shareholder base as palladium demand continues to exceed supply for the 9th year in a row. Our LK PGE-copper-nickel project, located in Finland, is consistently demonstrating that it hosts a large-scale, shallow, mineralized system. Timing is ideal, to provide US investors with more efficient investment access.” stated Derrick Weyrauch, President and CEO.
Application to trade on the OTCQB
The application to trade on the OTCQB is anticipated to provide greater liquidity and a more seamless trading experience for existing U.S. shareholders and potential new investors. Approval for trading on OTCQB would also provide exemptions from the U.S. state securities laws or “blue sky” exemptions which may help to further increase liquidity and expand the ability of investment advisors’ to research and recommend investment in Palladium One.
Application for DTC Eligibility
In conjunction with its OTCQB application, the Company is also applying for approval from the Depository Trust Company (DTC) to make the Company’s common shares eligible to clear electronically and settle through DTC. This approval would further facilitate trading in the United States.
