VANCOUVER, Jan. 20, 2016 /CNW/ - First Americas Gold Corporation (TSX-V:FAC) ("First Americas" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its Common shares of the Company are now listed on the Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin Stock Exchange under the symbol "1A5" and German Securities Number (WKN) or "A2ACLV".

Mr. Jackson, CEO of the Company commented: "We feel it is important to all of our shareholders that we take steps to both improve liquidity and diversify our shareholder base. Joining the German Stock Exchanges, specifically, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, which is the third-largest exchange-trading market in the world, as measured by trading volume behind NYSE and NASDAQ, helps the Company meet these goals. Listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange will increase the profile of First Americas with both retail and institutional investors in Germany and across Europe and will allow European investors timely access the Company's shares. This opportunity to broaden our shareholder base comes at an excellent time for our Company as we move into the next phase of our corporate growth initiative of actively looking to identify quality assets for the Company. This is a major step towards furthering the objectives of improving our visibility with the investment community and increasing investor awareness globally.".
