Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Corridor Resources Inc. fell 38 percent, the biggest decline in 11 years, after the Halifax-based petroleum explorer said it hasn’t attracted a joint-venture partner for a shale-gas prospect in New Brunswick.
Corridor fell 69 cents to C$1.13 at the close in Toronto.
Low prices for natural gas and the “current economic environment” are the reasons it failed to find a partner for its resources near Elgin, New Brunswick, Corridor said in a statement. The company will continue to look for a partner next year.
The explorer expects to end 2011 with C$6 million ($5.8 million) of working capital and no debt, it said in the statement. The company focuses on exploration in Canada’s eastern provinces.
