In its business, Western Standard Metals doesn't mind being left out in the cold as long as there is plenty of ice in the area. The exploration and mining company, formerly Nordic Diamonds, has properties in Finland (Kuopio-Kaavi Diamond Project), Sweden (the Nyborg sulphide and Storsjo uranium projects), and Canada (in the Nunavut region). It also is exploring a potash property in Alberta, a project it acquired in 2008. The next year it bought another property, the Almaden gold project in Idaho, from Freegold Ventures. In 2010 those two companies agreed to merge.
