Moss Lake Shareholders Approve Acquisition by Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd.

TORONTO, March 21, 2014 /CNW/ - Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. ("Moss Lake") (TSXV: MOK) is pleased to announce that its shareholders, at a special meeting held earlier today, approved its previously announced three-cornered amalgamation (the "Amalgamation") with Moss Lake's 56.8% shareholder Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. ("Wesdome") (TSX: WDO).

100% of the votes cast by all shareholders who were present at the meeting in person or represented by proxy were in favour of the Amalgamation.  Consequently, votes cast by "minority shareholders", which excluded Wesdome and certain other interested parties, were also 100% in favour of the Amalgamation.

George Mannard, President of Moss Lake, commented: "This creates a powerhouse junior exploration company with extensive mining and milling infrastructure in two proven Canadian gold mining camps, growing profitable production and a 100% owned resource base exceeding 5 million ounces of gold with which to plot our future course.  Clearly the combined entity is greater than the sum of its parts.  The resounding support of shareholders recognizes the potential of the combined assets and we believe over time the market will come to realize the value of this unique asset base."

Pursuant to the Amalgamation, Wesdome will, indirectly, acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Moss Lake which it does not already own and Moss Lake shareholders will receive one common share of Wesdome in exchange for every 3.85 common shares of Moss Lake.  Further details regarding the Amalgamation are set out in Moss Lake's Notice of Special Meeting of Shareholders and Information Circular dated February 14, 2014, a copy of which is available at under Moss Lake's profile.

Assuming all conditions to the Amalgamation are satisfied or waived, the Amalgamation is expected to become effective on March 21, 2014 or shortly thereafter.  If the Amalgamation is effected, thereafter the common shares of Moss Lake will cease to be listed on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV").
