Yes, JB Weld or another similar type of epoxy patch should be just fine as long as it's in a place where you can get at it and clean it thoroughly. You won't even have to remove it from the vehicle.JB weld is an option as well. To weld that you need to make sure to pull it and clean it thoroughly. If you are going to run a bolt up through it ensure no rotating components will hit that bolt or you'll be in for a bad day.
