Vancouver, British Columbia — DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: DME, U.S. OTC: DMEHF, Frankfurt: QM01) is pleased to announce that shares of its Common Stock (CUSIP No. 25043D107) have now been approved for DTC Eligibility by the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).

Founded in 1973 and based in New York City, DTC is the world’s leading securities depository.  It is organized as a limited purpose trust company and provides safekeeping through electronic record-keeping of securities balances of its participants. DTC facilitates electronic trading of securities in the U.S. through its depository system, which allows participating brokerage firms to electronically clear and settle trades with other member firms, rather than transferring physical certificates.  DTC is generally regarded as facilitating trading through increased ease of settlement and reduced costs.

According to Irwin Olian, CEO of the Company, “We are delighted that our securities have now been approved for DTC eligibility, as that should help facilitate trading in the U.S. and elsewhere. The securities industry has been rapidly moving forward with electronic clearing and elimination of physical stock certificates.  We believe it is important for the Company’s shares to be part of this process.”
