VANCOUVER, June 1, 2015 /CNW/ - Santacruz Silver Mining Ltd. ("Santacruz" or the "Company") (TSX.V:SCZ) is pleased to announce the listing of its shares on the Santiago Stock Exchange Venture ("SSEV") under the symbol "SZCL" denominated in Chilean Pesos. The primary exchange for Santacruz will remain the TSX Venture Exchange with the symbol SCZ.
This new listing will open access to a larger network of investors, which includes MILA (the Integrated Latin American Market). MILA is a consortium of countries that includes Chile, Colombia, Peru and Mexico, that have combined together to create a more liquid market for member countries to trade stocks throughout the network. Santacruz has always had a strong base of resident Mexican shareholders and the Company would like to further grow the shareholder base across the Latin American market.
Arturo Prestamo, President & CEO stated, "Being a significantly Mexican held company, it makes sense for the Company to continue to create more visibility across the Latin American market. The ties across these countries establish a relationship that allows better access to capital in regions that have a strong understanding of the mining industry and the potential of asset-rich companies like Santacruz."
