Firesteel Resources Inc. said July 27 that its shareholders have approved the company's name change to Nordic Gold Corp.
Firesteel's TSX-V trading symbol FTR will still remain, although the junior mining company has applied to change it. Its corporate colors, logo, identity and social media platforms will be updated to reflect the new name.
"We thought long and hard about this change and while we recognize that name changes are disruptive for shareholders, we believe it better reflects the company's strategy to become a mid-tier producer in Scandinavia and that will ultimately be better for shareholders," Firesteel President and CEO Michael Hepworth said.
Firesteel owns the near-production Laiva gold mine in Finland and has a 49% stake in the Star copper project in British Columbia.
