The following are all TSX gold producers whose shares are being traded in very similar patterns to VG: lots of near simultaneous transactions of miniscule amounts - 100 - 500 shares. Most sales are at or less than market value, effectively pushing down the price. The spewing of transactions is relentless, all day long.

LYD, NGD, AUQ, KGI, ARZ, BRD, LSG
There are probably others, I'm sure.
