Quaterra Provides Corporate Update and Status of NYSE Listing
Quaterra Resources Inc. ( the Company, TSX-V:QTA, NYSE-MKT:QTM) today announced the implementation of the following key corporate initiatives from August to the end of October that have helped the Company continue on its path of asset monetization and general corporate restructuring: the receipt of $1M from the acquisition of property by Freeport-McMoran Mineral Properties Inc. (FMMP) near Butte Valley, Nevada; the successful completion of an oversubscribed $2.9M private placement; the sale of three properties in central Mexico to Goldcorp Inc. for a total of $375,000 plus a 2% NSR royalty on each property capped at $2M; and aggressive cost cutting measures to lower general and administrative costs.
The company is currently focused on monetizing additional non-core assets and advancing its flagship properties in the Yerington copper district, Nevada, where additional land acquisition and an updated resource at the Yerington pit are in progress.
NYSE MKT Listing
On October 31, 2013, the NYSE-MKT (the Exchange) accepted the Company’s plan of compliance and granted it a listing extension until January 15, 2014 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards. Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by the end of the extension period could result in the Company being delisted from the NYSE MKT LLC. The Company continues to evaluate voluntary delisting from the Exchange.
This review by the Exchange does not impact the Company’s listing on the TSX Venture exchange (TSX-V) and its common shares will continue to be listed and traded on the TSX-V subject to compliance with its continued listing standards.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Mr. Steven Dischler, President & CEO
Quaterra Resources Inc. 775-463-9600
