Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

You gotta love Goldcorp's press release today about
its quarterly report, quite apart from the report's
outstanding numbers. Note especially the company's
treatment of gold as money, its holding gold as
money in its treasury, and its shouting: "We don't
hedge!"

You can find the press release here:
