With great sadness, we regretfully announce the passing of Wendy Gale Mathison, Vice President of Goldsource Mines Inc. Wendy passed away quietly after an arduous battle with melanoma cancer. All who knew and worked with her will sorely miss Wendy’s limitless energy, valued counsel and generous spirit.
Wendy was an energetic and driven person who impressed everyone with whom she came into contact. She had a wide circle of friends both within the minerals exploration industry, which she loved; and beyond it. She will be remembered for her focused and driven approach, and for balancing the demands of raising a family while managing large multi-disciplinary exploration teams in remote and challenging locations.
Wendy joined Goldsource Mines Inc. in December of 2008 where she diligently managed the Company’s new coal discovery in Saskatchewan. She aggressively and successfully completed a large winter drill program, which assisted with establishing a new emerging energy resource for Canada.
She is survived by her three daughters Emily, Clare, Zoe and her partner David plus many colleagues and friends.
Donations in her memory may be made to the Wendy Mathison Family Trust. The Trust will be making a donation to the Save Your Skin Foundation which focuses on events dedicated to raising money for education and awareness, along with research and treatment of skin cancer, especially melanoma.
