Regulators to take steps against short selling

Mining companies have been frequent targets. In the past decade, Silvercorp Metals, Pretium Resources, Asanko Gold and Northern Dynasty Minerals have been caught in particularly high-profile campaigns. Most recently, Novagold Resources sued J Capital Research for defamation in a New York court over the firm's May 2020 report that questioned the viability of the company's Donlin gold project in Alaska, a joint venture with Barrick Gold. The miner's stock took a tumble from roughly $16 to $10.75 in the 10 days following the report and is trading around $11 as of press time.
