According to the complaint, the defendants made several statements during the Class Period about the Company’s Las Cristinas Gold Project located in Sifontes, Venezuela, and that the issuance of the required Venezuelan government permit in connection with that project was imminent. The complaint alleges, however, that during the Class Period defendants did not have a reasonable expectation that the Company would receive the required permit and that on April 30, 2008, the permit was, in fact, denied. On news that the permit was denied, the complaint alleges, the Company’s stock fell roughly from a closing price of $1.68 on April 29, 2008, to a closing price of $0.91on April 30, 2008, on heavy volume.
