TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2020 – Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX: WDO) (“Wesdome” or the “Company”) today announces its gold production results for the third quarter of 2020 (“Q3”). All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.
Mr. Duncan Middlemiss, President and CEO commented, “Production in the third quarter of 20,008 ounces was lower than the previous quarter due to annual planned mill maintenance from May deferred to August, and the upgrade of the hoist control system affecting the productivity of the Eagle River mine.

Operations at the Eagle River Complex have continued in the third quarter with several measures in place to facilitate enhanced physical distancing to limit the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus.
