Canadian Stocks/Three Stock Certificates - Mining
Would you please advise if the following stock certificates are of any value: Bethsaida Copper Mines Ltd., Silver Ridge Mining Co. Ltd., and Copper Ridge Mines Ltd. Thank you for your time.
Donna, from the information I have available:
Bethsaida has gone through at least 13 name changes/acquisitions/mergers. Depending on how many shares there were in the original certificate, it may or may not represent shares of Enerplus today as all the activity may have wiped out the original shares. You will need to check with Enerplus' transfer agent, Computershare (www.computershare.com).
Silver Ridge went through numerous name changes and reverse splits (1 for 5, then 1 for 3, then 1 for 3, then 1 for 5) and is currently Troon Ventures, which trades on the TSX Venture for about 37 cents per share. The transfer agent is also Computershare.
Copper Ridge has no current value. The Company had several name changes before being dissolved in the early 1990's.
