"AH: George, you've obviously been watching the
'conspiracy' theorists who believe that every time the
gold price is ready to raise its head, something knocks
it back quite badly. We saw that happening again this
week. In fact last week the gold price seemed to be
heading above $290 and maybe even to $300 before the UK
announcement came out. What's your take on these

Whether influenced by uncertainties stemming from Y2K
or because global financial markets took a dramatic
