SINGAPORE Oct 7 LionGold Corp
requested on Monday that trading in its shares continue to be
halted, despite plans by Singapore Exchange to lift a trading
suspension it had imposed on the stock last Friday.
LionGold said in a stock exchange filing that it had
requested the trading halt due to a pending announcement.
Singapore Exchange Ltd suspended trading in
LionGold on Friday, along with Blumont Group Ltd and
Asiasons Capital Ltd after a plunge in their share
prices. The bourse said on Sunday that it would allow trading in
those stocks to resume subject to restrictions including a ban
on short selling.
