Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The secretarial help here at GATA headquarters isn't
what it used to be, so you've just been sent in error
some text involving what I do in my other life, in the
newspaper business in Connecticut. Please forgive
the distraction.

You were meant to receive an advisory about
TheMiningWeb.com's report that GATA's great
friend, Durban Roodeport Deep, is issuing new
shares this week to close its gold hedges in
advance of the June 30 deadline the company
set for itself. This hedge closing is great news
for gold.

You can find TheMiningWeb.com's story about
Durban here:

If that link is too long for you, just go to
TheMiningWeb.com's home page here:

The story about Durban is toward the bottom
right under the headline, "DRD to issue shares
for hedge."

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
