As noted above, the company had to respond to a request for information form regulators based on the giant jump in volume mainly on the Canadian exchange for shares of the company. While management contended that it had no idea what was going on, the company also included the sense that it might not be surprising that folks would be interested in the stock:
“The Company commenced its 2017 Spring Exploration Program in April 2017, and initiated its diamond drilling program at the Shumagin Gold Zone, within the Unga Gold Project, in May 2017. The 2017 Spring Drill Program, initially totaling up to 5,000m, has commenced on the geophysical anomalies along strike to the southwest of the known Shumagin Gold Zone, with a main goal to initially trace the occurrence quartz-adularia-carbonate breccias along strike of the Shumagin Fault and the footwall splay along approximate 100m centers. Concurrent with drilling, detailed prospecting and soils sample grids will cover the entire footwall basalt/andesite within the areas of the Northern footwall anomalies to locate geochemically anomalous areas along the structures that can be drill tested later during the summer.”
We would also note that there have been some screwy dynamics with Canadian junior gold miners as the monster ETF complex, including JGDX and JNUG, have encroached on too much exposure and need to diversify their holdings into some of the less known junior miners. We expect from time to time while this is going on we might see sudden speculative flourishes into names like RGCTF.
