U.S. Mint flunks Koos Jansen's gold audit document request, refunds his fee
6:54p ET Sunday, February 26, 2017
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Gold researcher Koos Jansen reports tonight that the U.S. Mint has provided him with some documents in response to his freedom-of-information request for documents related to audits of the U.S. gold reserve but the documents provided are incomplete, redacted, and hundreds of pages short of the number of pages he was told were involved for which he was charged, and so the Mint has refunded his payment.
As the money for his payment was raised by crowdfunding from his readers, Jansen is refunding their contributions.
This is more proof that something dishonest has been going on with the U.S. gold reserve.
Jansen's report is headlined "U.S. Mint Releases New Fort Knox 'Audit Documentation' -- the First Critical Observations" and it's posted at Bullion Star here:
