Answer
William, from the information I have available:

Can Con did a couple of name changes and reverse splits and became Visa Gold. Visa ran into serious trouble on several fronts, including with securities regulators, and was suspended, delisted, and cease-traded in 2003. Those cease-trade orders remain in effect today.  No current value.

Jacobus Mining had its charter cancelled and was dissolved in the mid-1970's. No value.

Martin Bird had its charter cancelled and was dissolved in the late-1970's. No value.

Lakelyn became Twin Gold Mines Ltd., which was cease-traded in 1991. Those cease-trade orders remain in effect. No value.

Laroma had its charter cancelled and was dissolved in the mid-1970's. No current value.

Marboy had its charter cancelled and was dissolved in the early 1970's. No value.

Silverfields was acquired by Teck in 1971.  Shareholders received 2 Teck Class B shares for every 5 Silverfields shares. Teck is now Teck Resources, which trades for about $25 a share on the TSX. You will need to contact the current transfer agent, Canadian Stock Transfer (www.canstockta.com) to determine if your old shares and valid.

United Duvex was cease-traded on Ontario in the late 1970's. Those orders remain in effect. No current value.
