OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Girard Gibbs LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors of Asanko Gold, Inc. (NYSE:AKG) involving possible securities law violations.
On May 31, 2017, the investment research firm Muddy Waters, LLC published a report on Asanko asserting that: (1) Asanko made investments based on flawed geology in Ghana’s Nkran, Esaase mines that Muddy Waters believes “will never be recovered;” (2) Nkran is already experiencing a serious collapse of its west wall requiring a $75 – $115 million spend to keep mining, which is likely to cause Asanko to run out of liquidity in 2018; and (3) there are indications that some of Asanko’s resources models have been “smeared,” which would cause estimates of their ore contents to be inflated.
Following this news, the company’s share price plummeted more than 30% on May 31, 2017, causing significant harm to investors.
