TORONTO, June 1 /CNW/ - Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd (WDO: TSX) has filed today on www.Sedar.com an amended version of its MD&A for the year ended December 31, 2009 and the related certificates under National Instrument 52-109 - Certification of Disclosure in Issuers' Annual and Interim Filings in respect of the refiled MD&A.
Upon further review, Management of the Company, with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer concluded that the lack of segregation of duties resulted in a material weakness in the Company's internal control over financial reporting and its disclosure controls and procedures. The lack of segregation of duties creates a risk that inaccurate entries could be made and not identified or corrected on a timely basis. The result is that the Company is highly reliant on the performance of mitigating procedures during the process of closing its financial statements in order to ensure the financial statements are presented fairly in all material respects. Management will re-assign current responsibilities and obtain additional accounting personnel to improve segregation of duties.
Management has also concluded that the financial statements do not contain any material misstatements.
The certificates are being refiled as to date.
