TORONTO, Sept. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Angkor Gold Corp. (TSXV: ANK and OTC: ANKOF) (“Angkor” or “the Company”) CEO Stephen Burega is pleased to announce that Angkor will change its name to Angkor Resources Corp. effective tomorrow.
The Company has received approval of the TSX Venture Exchange for the change and has filed Articles of Amendment with the Alberta Corporate Registry. There is otherwise no other change to the Company’s share or management structure.
“To better reflect Angkor’s expanding resource portfolio, Angkor has changed its name to Angkor Resources Corp.,” said Angkor CEO Stephen Burega. “With our recent announcement of our successful oil and gas license application in Cambodia, our new name reflects our diversification into oil and gas assets in addition to our established mineral exploration projects.”
There is no change to Angkor’s TSX-Venture Exchange symbol (TSXV:ANK). A new CUSIP number has been issued for Angkor Resources Corp. shares: CUSIP number 03476T105. The company will roll out a new website and related materials with the new branding in the coming months.
Angkor continues to explore numerous gold and copper targets on its five mineral exploration licenses covering a 983-square kilometre land package in Cambodia, with the support of the Cambodian government, local communities, and earn-in exploration funding partners, such as Canada’s Hommy 5 Resources Inc. and Australia’s Emerald Resources NL. In August 2019, Angkor also announced it had received the approval of the Government of Cambodia on its application for a 7300-square kilometre oil and gas concession. Angkor is now proceeding with the negotiation of the Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) with regard to the license.
