Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Here's another report about South Africa's
expulsion of Durban Roodeport Deep CEO
Mark Wellesley-Wood, from www.News24.com.
With all the political polemicism here, I
suppose that one has to read between the
lines, but in any case this seems likely
to discourage foreign investment in South
Africa and to make things harder for that

way to make his point.

This, MiningWeb.com, gives credence to the complaint
that central banks are in league to keep the gold price
down.

to keep its head above $300, with little success. Yet shares of
the riskiest gold mining companies, the so-called junior
