("Comstock" or the "Company") (NYSE: CRK) announced today that the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") has notified the Company that it has regained compliance with the NYSE's continued listing requirements relating to the minimum required stock price.  The NYSE requires that the average closing price of a listed company's common stock be no less than $1.00 per share over a consecutive 30 trading-day period and the stock price close above $1.00 per share on the last trading day of the month to provide an accelerated cure of non-compliance.
