Renaissance Gold Quoted on the Pink Open Market and DTC Eligible

Renaissance Gold Inc. (TSX.V: REN / Pink: RNSGF) (“RenGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to report  that the common shares of the Company are now quoted for trading in the United States on the Pink Open  Market under the trading symbol RNSGF. In addition, the Company’s common shares are eligible for  delivery and depository services of the Depository Trust Company (the “DTC”) to facilitate electronic  settlement of transfers of its common shares in the United States. Securities that are eligible to be  electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered “DTC eligible”. This electronic method  of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of stock and cash, and thus accelerates the settlement process  for investors and greatly reduces transactional costs for participating stock brokerages. Investors can find  the current Canadian financial disclosure of the Company on its profile on www.sedar.com. 

Robert Felder, Chief Executive Officer, stated “the US quotation with DTC eligibility should enhance and  simplify trading of our shares in the US. The Company is taking steps to graduate from the Pink Open  Market to the OTCQB and will announce when the listing takes effect in the next few weeks.”
