Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Reg Howe's presentation to the Association of Mining
Analysts in London on May 23 has been posted at You can find it here:

With his usual brilliance, Reg describes the background
of his lawsuit against the gold cabal in U.S. District
Court in Boston, the meaning of Judge Lindsay's decision,
the history of the United States' conversion from money
of intrinsic money to inconvertible paper money, the
evidence of surreptitious rigging of the gold price by
governments, and where all this leaves us.

It's must reading, and ranks with the last investigative
report by James Turk of the Freemarket Gold and Money
Report and Robert K. Landis' essay about Barrick's hedge
