Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

MineWeb's Stuart Bailey has written an excellent report
about the business partnership of GATA consultant
James Turk's GoldMoney and Durban Roodeport Deep.
The report shows that the enterprise here is nothing
short of the worldwide private remonetization of gold,
bringing monetary choice and liberation to people
everywhere. You can find the report here:

TOKYO, Jan. 30 (Reuters) -- Japan spent a record 7.1545 trillion

interpret for us the impact on the price of gold, considering
that there seems to be no insight as to how long the Bank

Dear Friend of GATA and gold:

The comments of Japan's finance minister quoted in the
Bloomberg story appended here almost certainly were
made only to patronize the member of Parliament who

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA Chairman Bill Murphy's "Midas" commentary tonight
at LeMetropoleCafe.com has important documentation of
what GATA has been telling the world for years: that
Western central banks are running a campaign against

potential of the private remonetization of gold: Durban
Roodeport Deep's acquisition of a share of GATA
consultant James Turk's GoldMoney.com.

The only thing wrong here is that the press release
and news stories about the transaction calculated
its costs in dollars rather than goldgrams.
