Canadian Stocks/Old stock certs


I have found 3 old stock certificates in my late fathers papers.

1 is for 500 shares of Gowganda Resources Inc and in his late wife's name with a receipt fropm Midland Doherty attached.  1 is for 500 shares of Seek Resources Ltd in his late wife's name with a receipt from Hector M. Chisholm and Co. attached and 1 is for 1000 shares of Systems-Air Corporation Limited with the "registered holder" being Hector M. Chisholm and Co. Limted.

Any idea of how I can check the potential value (if any) of these certificates?

Tony, from the information I have available:

Gowganda had a name change before being dissolved. No current value.

Seek had a 1 for 2.5 reverse split and became Argor Resources. I have no information on what happened to Argor.

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

For the Seek/Argor, I suggest you contact a broker and ask them to perform a search for you.
