Join GATA at Vancouver and California resource conferences


3:04p ET Thursday, December 8, 2011

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

With central bank intervention against the precious metals becoming more blatant as the international banking, fiat money, and crony capitalist systems come undone, recognition of the traditional role of the monetary metals is growing, and, with it, recognition that resource companies may become banks of a sort.

So Cambridge House resource conferences in January and February in which GATA will participate may have more than the usual interest for you.

The first is the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, to be held Sunday and Monday, January 22-23, 2012, at the Vancouver Convention Centre West on Coal Harbor in beautiful downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

For Continuous Wealth Creation, the Hera Research Newsletter

The life cycles of companies that produce natural resources allow investors to allocate assets among companies at different stages of development and to profit from transitions between stages.

Based on natural resource company life cycles, the Hera Research Newsletter maximizes profits through deep, fundamental analysis at each stage of development and by moving gains back to earlier-stage companies in a continuous wealth-creation process.

Hera Research covers a pipeline of high-quality natural resource companies at different stages of development. The companies span discovery and production of gold, silver, and platinum group metals, select base metals, oil and gas, green energy, agriculture, rare earth elements, uranium, and more.

Discover the unique value of the Hera Research Newsletter by visiting:

Or call Ron Hera at 360-339-8541x101.

In addition to GATA Chairman Bill Murphy, GATA board member Ed Steer, and your secretary/treasurer, the conference will hear many GATA-friendly speakers, including Frank Holmes of U.S. Global Investors; Al Korelin of the Korelin Economics Report; financial letter writers Peter Grandich, Jay Taylor, Ron Hera, David Morgan, and Thom Calandra; Peter Spina of GoldSeek and SilverSeek; and David Franklin of Sprott Asset Management.

Dozens of resource companies will be exhibiting, and discount rates are available for conference participants at the Pan Pacific hotel and other nearby hotels.

The California Investment Conference will follow on Saturday and Sunday, February 11 and 12, 2012, successor to the Phoenix Investment Conference. This one will be held at the spectacular Hyatt Grand Champions Resort in Indian Wells, just a few miles down the road from Palm Springs, an especially lovely place as winter engulfs most of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere.

Sprott Asset Management's chief investment strategist, John Embry, will be keynote speaker. Also speaking will be Holmes, Korelin, Calandra, Murphy, and your secretary/treasurer.

Golden Phoenix Signs Definitive Agreement
to Acquire and Reopen Santa Rosa Gold Mine in Panama

Company Press Release
Monday, September 19, 2011

SPARKS, Nevada -- Golden Phoenix Minerals Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GPXM) has signed a definitive agreement to acquire a 60 percent interest, with an option to buy an additional 20 percent interest, in the Santa Rosa gold mine in Panama, now owned by Silver Global S.A., a Panamanian corporation.

Santa Rosa produced more than 100,000 ounces of gold from 1996 to 1998 before being closed in part to low gold prices, which are now more than five times higher.

Golden Phoenix intends to acquire its initial 60 percent interest in Santa Rosa by acquiring 60 percent of the share capital of a recently created company under the name Golden Phoenix Panama S.A., formed to hold and operate the mine.

Tom Klein, CEO of Golden Phoenix says: "The agreement establishes a solid framework from which we can advance Mina Santa Rosa to production-ready status."
