There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kinross Gold Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Kinross Gold Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Kinross Gold Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kinross Gold Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kinross Gold Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kinross Gold Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kinross Gold Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kinross Gold Corporation shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kinross Gold Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kinross Gold Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Kinross Gold Corporation's share price.
