Wesdome and Moss Lake Announce Closing of Amalgamation

15:54 EDT Friday, March 28, 2014

TORONTO, March 28, 2014 /CNW/ - Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. ("Wesdome") (TSX:WDO) and Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. ("Moss Lake") (TSXV:MOK) are pleased to announce that Wesdome has completed its previously announced acquisition of the issued and outstanding common shares of Moss Lake (the "Moss Lake Shares") that it does not already own (the "Acquisition"). As a result, Moss Lake has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wesdome. It is anticipated that the Moss Lake Shares will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") on or about March 31, 2014. Wesdome will also cause Moss Lake to submit an application to cease to be a reporting issuer in each reporting jurisdiction in Canada. Under the terms of the definitive agreement governing the Acquisition, each former shareholder of Moss Lake (other than Wesdome) is entitled to receive one common share of Wesdome for every 3.85 Moss Lake Shares held.

Rowland Uloth, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wesdome stated "Moss Lake adds a potentially world class scale gold development opportunity given favourable economic conditions.  Combined with our extensive mining and milling infrastructure and experienced operating team, we are building an enviable portfolio of organic growth projects.  We welcome Moss Lake shareholders to the Wesdome family."

Moss Lake shareholders requiring assistance with submitting their Moss Lake Shares for exchange should contact their broker or Computershare Investor Services Inc. at 1-800-564-6253 or
