Vancouver, Canada - April 20, 2012 - Greg Myers, CEO and President of Caza Gold Corp. (CZY: TSX-V, CZ6: FSE and CZGDF: OTCQX), is pleased to announce that the Company’s shares will commence trading on the OTCQX International at the opening of the markets today, April 20, 2012, under the symbol “CZGDF”. OTCQX International is the OTC market’s prestigious tier.
“The OTCQX will allow Caza Gold to access the vast premium market in the US. There is a large number of US investors who cannot easily acquire shares of Canadian junior mining companies and the potential that these companies can offer to investors. The OTCQX is the place where Caza Gold can reach out to these investors, and we are very excited to begin our relationship” stated Dr. Myers.
Caza Gold Corp. has retained Merriman Capital Inc. (“Merriman”) to serve as Principal American Liaison (“PAL”) on the OTCQX, responsible for providing guidance on OTCQX requirements. Merriman Capital Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Merriman Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MERR) and is a member of FINRA (www.finra.org) and SIPC (www.sipc.org).
Spencer Grimes, Managing Director at Merriman, commented: “We are pleased to have assisted Caza with the launching of its trading on the OTCQX and look forward to extending our relationship with the Company as its PAL.”
