Question
hello I have some old stocks from Calder-Bousquet Gold Mines,Limited
I can't find any information about them on the internet
Did they go out of business or perhaps purchased by another company
They were issued by Doherty Roadhouse & Co in the 1930's
Any info would be appreciated  thank you.  Dave

Answer
Dave, from the information I have available, The Company had a 1 for 5 reverse split before being acquired by Rio Algom in 1961 on the basis of 1 Rio share plus 25 cents cash for each old share. Rio was acquired in 2000 by Billiton for $27 per share cash.

The registered holder of the Calder shares should have received the Rio shares in 1961 and then the cash in 2000. If not, it would have been turned over to the government for safekeeping in their name.
