Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX: WDO) has added a new member to its Board of Directors and believes they will be a valuable addition to the company team.
On Wednesday, the Toronto-based company announced that it has appointed Louise Grondin to the board.
Grondin formerly served as the Senior Vice President of People and Culture for Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. (TSX: AEM) (NYSE: AEM) until 2021 and currently serves as a Director on the board of Champion Iron Limited (TSX: CIA) (ASX: CIA) (OTCQX: CIAFF).
She graduated from the University of Ottawa with a bachelor of science and completed her masters in that field at McGill. She is also a member of Professional Engineers Ontario, a licensing and regulating body for engineers in the province.
“Louise is a highly accomplished leader who brings extensive experience in environment, health and safety, community relations and human resources, all of which closely align to our strategy and strengthen the existing skillset of the board,” said Warwick Morley-Jepson, Interim CEO of Wesdome.
“She will be a valuable addition to our team and we are looking forward to working with her.”
Morley-Jepson stepped in as Interim CEO for the company following the retirement of President and CEO Duncan Middlemiss last month.

Wesdome’s Board of Directors also announced today that they have appointed Charles Main to their newly created Lead Independent Director position. Wesdome says its 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 located in Ontario and Quebec.
The company had a challenging year in 2022, which is partially attributed to severe snowstorms hindering transportation of ore to its mill in Q4.
Wesdome announced commercial production at the Kiena Mine in Val d’Or, Quebec at the beginning of December last year.
Wesdome’s stock price rose by 2.19 per cent today to $6.30 on the TSX.
