i wondered that as well.
all-bid post on the jshg board might be relevant here, since Ben Ward and others were part of that scam, allegedly.
from all bid,
"Joshua Gold (JSHG) is a scam. You would have to be an idiot to invest in this company. This is a scam to sell shares to the public and nothing else.
The list of share holders and insiders includes individuals and their families who have done this type of scam several times in the past all with total losses to the public shareholders and these same individuals have made millions of dollars in these scams.
Here is a list of shareholders https://sec.report/Document/0001010412-18-000031/
Some key names here are Ben Ward and related companies. Mr. Ward was an executive of JSHG previously when a similar scam was run. Mr. Ward has also been an Executive of Sarissa Resources (SRSR) which had a similar scam where insiders sold millions of shares and pocketed millions of dollars. Mr. Ward has also been executive of Canadian Cannabis (CCAN) and Wayland Group (MRRCF) both of these firms are being investigated by the Ontario Securities Commision. https://equity.guru/2019/09/13/ben-ward-wayland-group-fame-among-trio-named-osc-first-canadian-cannabis-fraud-case/ https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/canadian-pot-firm-depleted-in-fraud-scheme-regulator-alleges-1.1316116
Also Associated with these scams are other key names on that JSHG shareholder list.
Scott Keevil and Sabine Frisch. This husband and wife duo were also involved in SRSR where Mr. Keevil was terminated for fraud. Mr. Keevil somehow then became executive of (CCAN)
(the wife and family members are used in these scams o obtain shares due their executive husbands and sell into the markets to avoid reporting requirements. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/sarissa-resources-inc-announces-termination-of-scott-keevil-594565581.html
Mr. Ben Fuschino – Was the CEO of Sarissa and its primary shareholder beginning in 2008. He than sold more than 30% of the outstanding shares without any disclosure of any kind. Mr. Fuschino was also involved in CCAN.
And here is the most important scammer on the JSHG shareholder list who is presently selling their shares. Currah Family. Penny, Andrew (they also use their now grown children) and Penny’s extended family the Ismindys.
First Andrew Currah and Penny Currah are convicted stock scammers. https://www.insidehalton.com/news-story/2914540-osc-orders-10-year-trading-ban-on-former-public-school-trustee/ https://www.osc.gov.on.ca/en/Proceedings_set_20051028_dammj.htm
The Currah family was also along with Mr. Fuschino the majority shareholder of SRSR. The Currah family sold hundreds of millions of dollars in shares in the name of their children’s trust as well and millions and millions more in the name of Penny. Mr. Currah was heavily involved in SRSR and benefited greatly from many insider friendly dealings. This of course was all despite him being under a Ontarion Securities Commision 10 year ban!!
Andrew Currah is also operates as the Investors Hub (stock message board) “ alias” Suvorov” and is promoting JSHG stock on the message board.
There are many additional companies where the Currah family has been involved and every single one of them was a total failure to public shareholders.
Also note in the settlement of the OSC case there is another name. Warren Hawkins. Mr. Hawkins was involved and the Findore Minerals scam with Me. Currah and recently authored the Ni-$3 101 technical Report on JSHG. Coincidently Mr. Hawkins was also the qualified person (geologist) to SRSR and its Shining Tree subsidiary.
Now Mr. Currah and Mr. Keevil and Mr. Ward were also involved in a gold company Shining Tree Resources which was a subsidiary of SRSR. In this company they were playing the same gold scam as they are in JSHG. In addition these individuals were involved in a private placement in shining tree where they raised over $US100,000 from individuals in the US and Canada and never provided them any shares of Shining Tree which is no worthless.
Want to know who authored the geological reports for Shining Tree? None other than Fred Sharpley who coincidently is the person involved in JSHG?
There are significant allegations of wrong doing in Sarissa Resources that can be found in an ongoing lawsuit in Ontario Superior Court. The defendants include Fuchino, Keevil’s, Currah’s and many other names which also on are on the JSHG list of shareholders that are selling shares to the public right now!!!
So if you think this is all a coincidence and that JSHG is going to actually become a mining company I have a bridge to sell you. Please contact me ASAP!!!" https://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=152713110
