NEW YORK, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Nevsun Resources Ltd. ("Nevsun" or the "Company") (AMEX: NSU).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) mining operations at Nevsun's Bisha Mine resulted in high yields of waste rock, rather than gold ore; (2) gold ore present at the Bisha Mine was materially less than the amount estimated by the Company's depictions; (3) Nevsun was extracting gold ore more rapidly than planned in order to conceal from investors the shortfall of actual gold at the Bisha Mine; (4) the Company was aware that its model was materially defective because the actual amounts of gold mined at the Bisha Mine did not reconcile with the Company's model previously disseminated to the investing public; and (5) as a result, Nevsun materially overstated its gold reserves at the Bisha Mine.
