European Goldfields, now known as Eldorado Gold

In its Annual Information Form dated March 31, 2011, European Goldfields stated with regard to Market Price Volatility, “The trading price of the Common Shares has been and may continue to be subject to large fluctuations….Ownership of the Common Shares is currently concentrated and sales of substantial amounts of Common Shares in the public market by the Company’s shareholders, or the perception that such sales might occur, could result in a material adverse effect on the market price of the Common shares….[t]he effect of these and other factors on the market price of the Common Shares on the exchanges in which the Company trades has historically made the Company’s share price volatile and suggests that the Company’s share price will continue to be volatile in the future.” Investors, certified public accountants and estate planning attorneys should be especially concerned when seeing this stock in an investment portfolio managed by Raymond James or UBS Financial Services if the portfolio was not supposed to be invested in high risk securities. Not only should your clients consider having a Certified Financial Planner review the portfolio, they should also consider having an experienced securities arbitration attorney review the portfolio.

Golden Queen Mining, Ltd.

In its 10Q report for the first quarter of 2011, Golden Queen stated, “[t]he Company has had no revenues from operations since inception and as at March 31, 2011 has a deficit of $64,172,865 accumulated during the exploration stage. Management plans to control current costs and does not anticipate requiring additional financing to fund Company activities over the next twelve months. In addition, management plans to secure equity and/or debt or joint venture financing to fund construction of the operating facility at the Soledad property (“Soledad”) once a feasibility study has been concluded and a production decision has been made. The ability of the Company to obtain financing for its ongoing activities and thus maintain solvency, or to fund construction of the operating facility at Soledad, is dependent on equity market conditions, the market for precious metals, the willingness of other parties to lend the Company money or the ability to find a joint venture partner. While the Company has been successful at certain of these efforts in the past, there can be no assurance that future efforts will be successful. This raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.” Investors, certified public accountants and estate planning attorneys should be especially concerned when seeing this stock in an investment portfolio managed by Raymond James or UBS Financial Services if the portfolio was not supposed to be invested in high risk securities. Not only should your clients consider having a Certified Financial Planner review the portfolio, they should also consider having an experienced securities arbitration attorney review the portfolio.
