In 1996 we purchased a stock called Xavier Mines Limited(XZX) for $10,000.00.This was on the Canadian Stock exchange as a company that was going to drill for oil in the Soviet Union. In 1997 the stock progressively went down until it was no longer listed on the exchange. We, as well as our broker can find very little information on this company at this point. Phone calls and e-mails bring no response. Could anyone tell me how I handle this loss on my taxes form this year? I never sold any of the just disappeared!!! And what happens in 1998 if it suddenly resurfaces? ( I should be so lucky!!) Thanks for all and any input!
