Montreal, Quebec: Aurvista Gold Corporation (“Aurvista” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AVA, OTCQB: ARVSF; Frankfurt: AV2) announces that the company has secured DTC Eligibility by The Depository Trust Company for its shares on the OTC effective March 13, 2017. The Depository Trust Company (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 trading the Company’s shares on the OTCQB.
Jean Lafleur, President and CEO of Aurvista stated, "We are pleased to announce that we have obtained DTC eligibility. Securing DTC-eligibility greatly simplifies the process of trading and exchanging our common stock in the United States. We would like to thank our transfer agent, Vstock Transfer, for their guidance through this process. We look forward to keeping our shareholders up to date with progress at the Company’s Douay Gold Project in the weeks and months ahead."
