Chris Buncic, President and CEO of Ascendant commented: "We are very pleased to list on the TSX main board as it represents another key milestone for Ascendant as we progress our plans to build a mid-tier mining company. A TSX listing is a natural progression for Ascendant and will help raise the profile of the Company with investors as well as widen the pool of those able to invest in the secondary market. The combination of success in our operations and exploration as well as our strong leverage to zinc prices in a rising price environment should prove to be an exceptional combination going forward".
Final approval of the TSX listing is subject to Ascendant meeting certain standard and customary conditions required by the TSX on or before September 26, 2017.
