TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 20, 2012) - Galane Gold Ltd. ("Galane Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GG) is pleased to announce that it has listed its shares on the Botswana Stock Exchange ("BSE") under the trading symbol "GG". This listing will serve as a secondary listing for the Company's common shares and the primary exchange for the common shares will remain the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV").
The listing on the BSE does not involve the issuance of new common shares of the Company or any other securities or derivatives, such as depositary receipts, as it was structured solely to allow the common shares of the Company that are currently issued and outstanding to be tradeable by investors through the facilities of the BSE. The listing will not result in any changes to the rights and entitlements of holders of the Company's common shares, irrespective of whether they purchase their shares through the TSXV or the BSE.
"Listing our shares on the BSE further aligns our Company with Botswana, home to our operations, employees and future aspirations. We are very pleased to facilitate investor participation from Botswana and Southern Africa and believe that increased ownership in Botswana will benefit the Company and all of its shareholders. We expect that over time, the BSE listing will contribute to a lower cost-of-capital and increased liquidity in our shares" stated Galane Gold CEO Philip Condon.
