CALGARY, Oct. 12, 2017 /CNW/ - PRIZE MINING CORPORATION ("Prize" or the "Company") (TSXV:PRZ) (OTCQB:PRZFF) (MQSP:GR:FRANKFURT) is pleased to announce that it has secured DTC Eligibility for its OTCQB-listed common shares (PRZFF).
Feisal Somji, Chief Executive Officer of Prize, stated: "Achieving DTC eligibility will greatly simplify the process of trading and exchanging our common shares in the United States, which should benefit all shareholders. We believe being listed and tradeable in the U.S. is highly complementary to the growth trajectory of the Company. This approval will broaden the Company's appeal to U.S. investors and allow brokers and professional advisers previously unable to follow or recommend the Company's stock, to become engaged with the Prize story at this pivotal stage of development. We look forward to keeping our shareholders up to date with the progress on our Q4 discovery focused drill program in southeastern B.C."

This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process for investors.
In addition to the OTCQB, shares of Prize will also continue to trade on the TSX Venture and Frankfurt stock exchanges.
