Asanko Gold tumbles as Muddy Waters says it is shorting stock

TORONTO, May 31 (Reuters) - Asanko Gold Inc shares fell more than 13 percent on Wednesday after short-selling firm Muddy Waters said it was shorting the stock due to concerns about the company’s mining operations in Ghana.

Asanko shares were halted on the Toronto Stock Exchange after the drop.

An Asanko Spokeswoman said the company was reviewing claims from Muddy Waters and had no other comment. (Reporting by Solarina Ho in Toronto; Editing by Jim Finkle)
