To paraphrase Juliet Capulet (Act 2 Sc 2), "What's in a name? That which we call a scumbag ripoff scam-laden heap of fetid turds by any other name would smell as putrid." Yesterday the front-running rip-off merchants at ATW Gold (ATW.v) that screwed over their shareholders in one of the worst cases of illegal frontrunning sales seen for a while (and the most bare-faced in 2009, that's for sure), decided that they don't want to be weighed down with the name ATW Gold any more and so they changed it. Here's the NR, here's an excerpt:
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 13, 2011) - ATW Gold Corp., (TSX VENTURE:ATW - News; "ATW" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that effective January 14, 2011 the Company's new name will be Redhill Resources Corp.
Effective at the opening Jan. 14, 2011, the common shares of Redhill Resources Corp. will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange and the common shares of ATW Gold Corp. will be delisted.
The Company will trade under the new symbol RHR: TSX-V.
So this post exists as a warning to anyone in the future that's even thinking of considering in buying a few shares in Redhill Resources (RHR.v). So far you've managed to put the name into Google and that's a good start. What you now need to do is click right here and read how these scumballs treat their shareholders. You'd also be interested in the amount of cheap share options they've recently been awarding themselves too, I'd reckon.
