The Wesdome Board of Directors also announced today that it has appointed Charles Main to his newly created position of Lead Independent Director. Wesdome says his board members selected him for the influential role because of his leadership skills and integrity.

Wesdome is a Canadian gold producer with two flagship underground mines in Ontario and Quebec.

The Company had a challenging year in 2022, due in part to severe snowstorms that hampered ore transportation to its mill in the fourth quarter.

Wesdome announced commercial production at the Kiena mine in Val d’Or, Quebec in early December last year.

Wesdome’s share price rose 2.19 percent today to $6.30 on the TSX.
