Canadian Stocks/Old stock certificates


A client presented us with several old stocks certificates found after his mother passed away.  I am tasked with determining if any of these still have any value. Help.

Dutch Guiana Minerals Corporation   dated 12/20/1955 The Eastern Trust Co, Transfer agent & registrar
International Mining & Development Corp  dated 8/12/1955  Guaranty Trust company of Canada, Trans agent & registrar

Thank yo for any info you might provide

Ginny, I have been asked about both companies several times before, which suggests there is a large number of certificates out there. Unfortunately, I don't have any information on Dutch Guiana at all. For International Mining and Development, it was liquidated in 1970. Shareholders received shares of International Diversified and Precious Metals Ltd., but unfortunately I have no other information on either company.

Since the transfer agents are both defunct, I suggest you contact a broker and ask them to perform a detailed search for you.
