Peter Kennedy reports on why a B.C. regulator has fined ex-chairman of TSX-listed China firm in his Stockhouse Short Report.

Top Bullboards post: “The grade may be 5.5 g/t but doesn't mean that's the grade they are going to push through the mill. Timmins West grade was 7.8g/t and last quarter the grade was less than half of that (3.49?). Also some concern about the 1.5g/t cut off grade. At first glance, anything outside of the sweet zone is questionable. Need some time to go over the numbers. Don't get me wrong, I want this to succeed as much as anyone else.” From Vanchester on the Lake Shore Gold (TSX: T.LSGStock Forum) board.

TORONTO, NEW YORK (CP) - The Toronto stock market closed lower as concerns lingered about Europe's debt crisis, but the TSX found support from energy stocks as oil surged past the US$100 mark to its highest level in more than five months.

The S&P/TSX composite index lost 54.91 points to 12,174.36 while the TSX Venture Exchange slipped 14.27 points to 1,633.22.

Losses on U.S. markets picked up after ratings agency Fitch warned that the eurozone debt crisis poses a threat to U.S. bank ratings and investors also considered how the recent, rapid rise in oil prices could affect the economic revival. Oil has surged 10 per cent so far this month.

The Dow Jones industrial index fell 190.57 points to 11,905.59. The Nasdaq composite index lost 46.59 points to 2,639.61 and the S&P 500 index was down 20.9 points to 1,236.91.
