Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Sanders Research Associates, an economic analysis company
based in Ireland, has just published in its widely read Quarterly
Commentary an interview with GATA Chairman Bill Murphy about
the suppression of the price of gold. It's well-done and worth sharing
with the financial press and anyone interested in the markets. You
can read it at the GATA web site at:

What if central banks have dumped their gold already?

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA gets many suggestions, and some were offered to
us publicly the other day by Ted Butler, who frequently
has written about the precious metals markets and

By Keith Damsell
June 14, 2000

The $3.7 billion merger of Franco-Nevada and Gold
Fields is expected to send a shock wave across Canada's
mining sector with a wide mix of players feeling the
impact of the deal.

"This changes the face of the industry," said one
Toronto analyst that's working on the merger. "There's

Gold Fields/Franco merger bad for Barrick

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Below is the press release announcing the merger of
Gold Fields and Franco-Nevada. The people at these
companies believe in gold's historic purposes and
have been acting from that belief, and so I think
that this couldn't be better for the gold cause.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

For evidence that GATA's "Gold Derivative
Banking Crisis" report is zipping around
the world, you might want to check out an
interesting essay by Adam Hamilton at

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

You'll see from GATA Chairman Bill Murphy's
comments below that GATA now is raising
serious questions about what is going on
with gold being shipped out of the Federal
