Canadian Stocks/Fathers old shares found in a file
please advise if any of the following are of any value.
600 shares of Venus Mines Ltd.
700 shares of Rideau Carleton Raceway Holdings Limited
100 shares of Cuyuni Goldfield Ltd.
Len, from the information I have available:
Venus has no current value. The Company was dissolved in the early 1980's.
Rideau Carlton is a difficult one. I don't know what ever happened to the stock or even if it ever traded, but I believe the Company is still the current owner of Rideau Carlton Raceway in Ottawa. I suggest you contact them through their website and inquire: http://rcr.net/
. Hopefully they can give you some information on the history of the company and the status of the stock.
I have no information on Cuyuni Goldfield, as it appears the stock is very old. But I do see some certificates for sale on the internet as art for collectors at a nominal value (a few dollars), which strongly suggests there is no current value. I suggest you contact a broker and ask them to perform a detailed search for you.
