Have Challenger Exploration's shares ever split?
Challenger Exploration's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 30 April 2019. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Challenger Exploration shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Challenger Exploration shares which in turn could have impacted Challenger Exploration's share price.
Challenger Exploration share price volatility

This would suggest that Challenger Exploration's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
