WINDSOR, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- The Class Actions that originated in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice resulting from the Bre-X bankruptcy and the "gold fraud allegations" in the Busang are now the only actions against the Estate of David Walsh, Bre-X's former president, his wife Jeannette, John Felderhof, Bre-X's former chief geologist, his former wife Ingrid Felderhof, Spartacus Corp., Stephen McAnulty and Nancy McAnulty.
