Lawrie Williams: Bullion dealers that colluded with U.S. in 1974 have changed ownership
9:50a ET Sunday, January 8, 2017
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
The London bullion dealers that colluded with the U.S. government in establishing the gold futures market for price suppression in 1974 have changed ownership since then, market analyst Lawrie Williams noted yesterday.
Williams, who does commentary for one of the bullion dealers cited in a cable from the U.S. embassy in London detailing that collusion, writes that the cited dealers no longer "exist in their original form nowadays, and, except perhaps for Mocatta's successor, can no longer be considered part of any grouping that exerts any significant effect on the gold price today."
GATA's dispatch last week about the cable is posted here:
Williams' response is posted at his blog here:

Canadian Government Issues Key Water License
for Seabridge Gold's KSM Project in British Columbia
Monday, November 21, 2016
TORONTO -- Seabridge Gold Inc. (TSX: SEA) (NYSE:SA) announced today it has received a license from the Government of Canada required for the construction, operation, and maintenance of the water storage facility and associated ancillary water works at its 100 percent-owned KSM Project in northwestern British Columbia.
The license, as authorized within the International Rivers Improvement Act, regulates all structures and activities situated on transboundary waters shared with the United States that have the potential to affect water quality and quantity. The Water storage facility and its ancillary water works (water diversion ditches and tunnels) are the primary water management control systems for the KSM Project. These facilities separate water that has not contacted mined material from so-called contact water originating from disturbed areas of the mine site and then contain the contact water prior to treatment and eventual release to the receiving environment.
These facilities are situated on Mitchell and Sulphurets creeks, tributaries of the transboundary Unuk River system that flows into Alaska. The license was granted for a term of 25 years under the International Rivers Improvements Regulations as administered by Environment and Climate Change Canada. ...
