Corridor Resources Inc. fell the most in more than nine years after reporting “perplexing” results from a natural-gas shale formation in New Brunswick, Canada.
The company got “negligible” gas or none at all from two wells in the Elgin area, according to a statement today. Considering gas flows from nearby wells and from earlier drilling, “the preliminary responses of these wells are both unexpected and perplexing,” Halifax, Nova Scotia-based Corridor said.
Corridor fell C$2.57, or 33 percent, to C$5.19 at 4 p.m. on the Toronto Stock Exchange. It was the biggest decline since March 2001.
