Lake Shore Gold says it expects to write down assets in fourth quarter report

TORONTO – Lake Shore Gold Corp. (TSX:LSG) says it will be reducing the carrying value of its assets in Mexico and Timmins, Ont., but the amount hasn’t yet been determined.

The Toronto-based mining company had a total market value of $266 million as of Friday, when its shares closed at 64 cents on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The stock dropped a penny after markets re-opened Monday.

That was just above a 52-week low set on Feb. 20.

The company’s stock is worth only about one-third of the high it set a year ago.
