Court order to wind-up Eastern Goldfields

The Supreme Court of Western Australia has ordered the winding-up of Michael Fotios’s Eastern Goldfields and the appointment of liquidators, after an application by a local assay laboratory. 

Perth-based Eastern, which just last month hailed its first gold pour at the Davyhurst operation near Kalgoorlie, went into a trading halt this morning following the Supreme Court’s wind-up order.

The winding application was lodged yesterday by Maddington-based Genalysis Laboratory Services, which is owned by global group Intertek.
