TORONTO – Shareholders of WESDOME GOLD MINES and of WESTERN QUEBEC MINES approved the proposed merger of the two companies at the end of June, and now the deal has received the blessing of the Quebec Superior Court of Justice. This clears the way for a share exchange that will make Western Quebec a subsidiary of Wesdome.
The combined company will maintain a focus on gold. The deal consolidates ownership of the Eagle River (Wawa, Ont.) and Kiena (Val dOr, Que.) mines and the Mishi-Magnacon (Wawa) complex under the Wesdome name. Wesdome is also exploring the Moss Lake property near Thunder Bay, Ont. Western Quebecs exploration projects include projects near Val dOr.
