July 20, 2017 – Vancouver, BC – Group Ten Metals Inc. (TSX.V: PGE; US OTC: PGEZF, FSE: 5D32) (the “Company” or “Group Ten”) is pleased to announce that effective today FINRA has approved shares of the Company’s common stock to trade in the US on the OTC market under the symbol “PGEZF”.
The new US ticker symbol complements the Company’s TSX Venture Exchange symbol “PGE” and reflects our primary focus on quality platinum group element projects in favourable mining jurisdictions.
Mr. Michael Rowley, President and CEO, stated, “This is a first step towards increasing our visibility in the US markets as a platinum group element (PGE) focused explorer. With the recent acquisition of our Stillwater West project, adjacent to Sibanye’s Stillwater palladium-platinum mine in Montana, the Company has been generating significant interest from US-based investors. The Stillwater West project positions Group Ten as the second-largest land holder in the Stillwater Complex, which is the highest-grade PGE producer in the world and the largest outside South Africa and Russia.”
Mr. Rowley further noted, “With the field season in full swing we anticipate delivering additional updates from our initial work at Stillwater West, field work on our holdings in the Kluane Ultramafic Belt in Yukon adjacent to Wellgreen Platinum, and from our Black Lake – Drayton project in the Rainy River district of Ontario adjacent to First Mining Finance’s Goldlund project.”

Although Group Ten believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include failure to obtain necessary approvals, unsuccessful exploration results, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, results of future resource estimates, future metal prices, availability of capital and financing on acceptable terms, general economic, market or business conditions, risks associated with regulatory changes, defects in title, availability of personnel, materials and equipment on a timely basis, accidents or equipment breakdowns, uninsured risks, delays in receiving government approvals, unanticipated environmental impacts on operations and costs to remedy same, and other exploration or other risks detailed herein and from time to time in the filings made by the companies with securities regulators.
