Shorting Sandstorm Gold shares

Sandstorm Gold's SIR currently stands at 3.3. In other words for every 100,000 Sandstorm Gold shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3300 shares are currently held short.
However Sandstorm Gold's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sandstorm Gold shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sandstorm Gold shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sandstorm Gold's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sandstorm Gold shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0341% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sandstorm Gold shares, roughly 34 shares are currently held short).
