The firms are associated entities of Brian Wesson and Clyde Wesson, who have been serving as CEO and vice president at Nordic Gold since they were installed by their management-services company Lionsbridge Capital Pty Ltd in July.
The shares are being issued as payment for costs incurred and work carried out by Lionsbridge, which Nordic Gold hired to manage its operations as part of a plan to bring Nordic’s Laiva Project — a gold mine in Finland — back online.

One step the Wesson-led Nordic took was reaching an agreement with Pandion Mine Finance to settle its C$63.4 million debt to the company for a total consideration of US$24.6 million (C$32.1 million).
Once issued, the shares will be subject to a four-month hold period. The move is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
