evasive answers to GATA's questions about government
intervention in the gold market.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The bottom of the following Reuters story today
suggests that GATA is making progress -- that is,
that the gold issue has started to come up by itself
when financial journalists and the highest U.S.
government officials get together and that we're

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Wednesday's conference of the Committee for Monetary
Research and Education, held in New York, was a great

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Our friend Reginald H. Howe, Harvard-trained lawyer, former
mining company executive, proprietor of www.goldensextant.com,

lower levels of the U.S. Treasury Department to the
questions posed in GATA's December 9, 1999, open letter
