Sutts, Strosberg LLP Announces Update to the Bre-X Class Action

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.

Over the last year, the actions by Bre-X's Trustee in Bankruptcy in Ontario, Alberta and the Cayman Islands have been dismissed and a Mareva injunction in the Cayman Islands has been dissolved.
