Tungsten Corp., is a publicly traded exploration stage mining company, that engages in the identification, acquisition, and exploration of metals and minerals. It focuses on tungsten mineralization on its properties located in Nevada.
According to reports, Tungsten Corp. shares have dropped -28.57% over the past 4-weeks, -16.67% over the past half year and -28.57% over the past full year.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced this week the temporary suspension of trading in the company’s securities, commencing at 9:30 a.m. EDT on May 25, 2018.
The Commission temporarily suspended trading due to a lack of current and accurate information about the Tungsten Corp. because they have not filed certain periodic reports with the Commission.
According to SEC filings, Tungsten Corp. filed a Form D to raise capital from investors in 2014 in Davie. FL. The total offering amount was $3,150,000.
Investments such as these are typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up front commission. High fees can range from 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%. In this case, sales commissions of 8% were paid on the investment, according to the Form D.
The problem with private placement investments such as Tungsten Corp. is that they typically involve a high degree of risk. They are also often sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.
