Toronto, Ontario, May 25, 2018 – Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARU; OTCQB: AUIAF) (“Aurania” or the “Company” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loQK2aflD3Q&t=2s ) is pleased to announce that its common shares are now trading on the OTCQB Venture Market ("OTCQB"), a U.S. trading platform that is operated by OTC Markets Group in New York. The Company will trade on OTCQB under the symbol "AUIAF "; the Company's common shares will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "ARU".
“Trading on OTCQB is a critical component of our IR program to increase Aurania’s profile and exposure to a broader audience. U.S. domestic investors will now have access to the same high-quality information about our Lost Cities – Cutucu project that is available to other investors. We expect that trading on OTCQB will enhance liquidity and reduce the recent volatile trading activity,” said Dr. Keith Barron, Aurania’s Chairman and CEO. “Aurania has a very compelling story to tell, and part of that includes broadening our investor base globally.”
