Pacific Rim Mining Commences Trading on OTCQX
Pacific Rim Mining Corp. (“Pacific Rim” or “the Company”) common shares commenced trading under the
symbol PFRMF at the opening of markets this morning on the OTC market’s highest tier, OTCQX International.
Delisting of the Company’s common shares from the NYSE Amex Equities exchange (“NYSE Amex”) as
announced on August 19, 2010 (see NR #10-08), took effect concurrently.
“We are pleased to have provided a seamless transition for trading of the Company’s shares, from NYSE Amex
to OTCQX,” states Tom Shrake, President and CEO of Pacific Rim. “Pacific Rim and its shareholders have
enjoyed a very productive relationship with NYSE Amex over the past eight years and have benefited greatly
from the Amex listing. However, it was a sound business decision for Pacific Rim to delist from AMEX as the
dilution cost to our shareholder base to maintain our listing, as well as annual ongoing listing fees are simply too
costly. Management believes the Company’s shares are better suited to the OTCQX trading platform at this time.
US investors can take comfort that Pacific Rim continues as an SEC-registered issuer and will continue to
complete the public filings and disclosures commensurate with SEC registration. The Company’s shares may still
be purchased and sold through all normal trading channels. The Company remains listed on the Toronto Stock
“The OTCQX platform supports a transparent marketplace with high quality issuers, financial information
disclosure and efficient trading for U.S. investors,” said R. Cromwell Coulson, President and CEO of Pink OTC
Markets. “We are pleased to welcome Pacific Rim Mining to OTCQX.” The innovative OTCQX platform offers
companies and their shareholders a level of marketplace services formerly available only on a U.S. stock
exchange. For more information and to view a full list of OTCQX companies, visit www.otcqx.com .
