TORONTO – TheNewswire – October 6, 2020 – Alturas Minerals Corp. (TSXV:ALT) (“Alturas” or the “Company“) today announces that further to its press release on September 3, 2020 disclosing the disposition of its remaining interest in the Sombrero concession to Auryn Resources Inc., the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“) has advised the Company that it does not meet the Exchange’s Tier 1 Continued Listing Requirements (“CLR“) and, as a result, the Company’s Tier classification changed from Tier 1 to Tier 2 as of Monday, October 7th., 2029. Further, the Exchange has provided the Company 90 days to submit documentation evidencing that it meets Tier 2 CLR which includes the acquisition of an operating asset. If the Company is unable to file satisfactory documentation before such date, the Company will be transferred to the NEX Board of the Exchange.
The Company intends to pursue opportunities to acquire an operating asset and make submissions to the Exchange regarding the Company’s Tier 1 CLR deficiencies, however there can be no assurance the Company will be successful in this regard.
The reclassification of the Company as a Tier 2 issuer will not result in any change to Alturas’s trading symbol, which will remain “ALT”.
Alturas also confirms that all four directors on its board remain in place and that Miguel Cardozo and Mario Miranda, its current Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, respectively, remain in their existing roles.
Alturas is a Canadian corporation, and is the indirect parent of the Peruvian company, Alturas Minerals S.A. (“Alturas Peru”) and of the Chilean company, Alturas Chile Limitada (“Alturas Chile”). Alturas Peru has been exploring various mineral projects in Peru since January 2004. Alturas interrupted its exploration activities in Chile and is focused in new business opportunities.
