Thursday, January 20th, 2022, Vancouver, BC - Elevation Gold Mining Corporation (TSX.V:ELVT) (OTCQX: EVGDF) (the “Company” or “Elevation”) a U.S. focused gold producer with district scale exploration projects in the Walker Lane Trend of Nevada and Arizona, is pleased to provide the following corporate update.
Drill crews have returned to the Moss Mine site and the 2022 exploration drilling program is now underway. Two reverse circulation drill rigs are currently turning on the property.
Michael G. Allen, President of Elevation Gold stated, “We have many new targets to test, in addition to continued resource expansion drilling, and are planning to systematically explore the district scale land package surrounding the Moss Mine, Arizona’s largest pure precious metals mine.”
The Company is pleased to announce that it has received approval from the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) that its common shares are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through DTC in the United States.
With DTC eligibility, existing Elevation investors based in the United States can now benefit from potentially greater liquidity and faster execution speeds. In addition, DTC eligibility also allows for new investors to efficiently trade the Company's common shares, whereas they may have been restricted in the past, potentially simplifying the process of trading common shares of the Company in the United States and allowing the Company to access a larger pool of investors. The Company’s trading symbols will not change as part of this process.
