Heliostar Metals resumes trading on OTCQX

2023-05-23 12:01 ET - News Release

Mr. Charles Funk reports


Heliostar Metals Ltd. has returned to trading on the OTCQX Best Market following the completion of the acquisition of the Ana Paula project. Heliostar will continue trading under the symbol HSTXF. U.S. investors can find current financial disclosure and real-time Level 2 quotes for the company on the OTC Markets website.

Heliostar chief executive officer Charles Funk commented: "Reinstatement on the OTCQX was a priority upon completing the acquisition of the Ana Paula gold project. The scale of the transaction required a trading halt on our primary Canadian exchange resulting in a subsequent pause on the company's OTCQX status until today. Heliostar shares resumed trading at an opportune time for our current and prospective American shareholders. We expect the first drill results from Ana Paula this week."

The OTCQX Market operates a regulated market for trading 12,000 U.S. and international securities. To qualify for OTCQX, companies must meet high financial standards. They must follow best-practice corporate governance and demonstrate compliance with applicable securities laws. Trading on the OTCQX Market enables companies to demonstrate their qualifications and build visibility among U.S. investors.

Burns, Figa & Will PC acted as the company's OTCQX sponsor.
