. About Williams Creek Gold Limited (WCX)
Visit http://www.WilliamsCreek.ca to learn more about Williams Creek Gold Limited.
Williams Creek Gold Limited is a Canadian company with the primary purpose of participating broadly in the natural resource sector, with an emphasis on the gold sub-sector, through exploration, joint ventures or other equity investments.
The Company owns various mineral interests in the Cariboo, Kamloops and Omineca Mining Divisions in the province of British Columbia. The Company also has a joint venture outside of Yellowknife, NT, and a net 30% interest in the ATW diamond property in the MacKenzie Mining District of the Northwest Territories.
The Company is engaged in the exploration of mineral properties, an inherently risky business. There is no assurance that a mineral deposit will ever be discovered and economically produced. Most exploration projects do not result in the discovery of commercially mineable ore deposits. The price of gold is affected by numerous factors beyond the control of the Company and has been volatile over short periods of time.
The Company is subject to the laws and regulations relating to environmental matters in all jurisdictions in which it operates, including provisions relating to property reclamation, discharge of hazardous material and other matters. The Company may also be held liable should environmental problems caused by former owners and operators of its properties and properties in which it had an interest be discovered. The Company believes it conducts its mineral exploration activities in compliance with all local legislation and regulation as well as all applicable environmental protection legislation. The Company is not aware of any existing environmental problems related to any of its current or former properties that may result in material liability to the Company. Environmental legislation is becoming increasingly stringent and costs and expenses of regulatory compliance are increasing. The impact of new and future environmental legislation on the Company's operations may cause additional expenses and restrictions. If the restrictions adversely affect the scope of exploration and development on the mineral properties, the potential for production on the property may be diminished or negated. Although, the Company has taken steps to verify the title to mineral properties in which it has an interest, in accordance with industry standards for the current stage of exploration of such properties, these procedures do not guarantee the Company's title. Property title may be subject to unregistered prior agreements or transfers and title may be affected by undetected defects. The Company has no revenues from operations at present; the only sources of funds currently available to the Company are the appreciation of assets held by the company and their sale, the sale of equity capital, or the offering of an interest in its projects to another party.
The Company is a reporting issuer in British Columbia, trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "WCX.V".
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
James Wyant, Chairman and interim CEO

I’m going to cry tonight, long and hard. I’ll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan. I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo’s headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn’t called Cloud Expo then, of course – it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...
