Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Vancouver and the Vancouver Resources Investment
Conference, sponsored by Cambridge House, could
not have been more welcoming to GATA, especially
since the conference, held at the city's convention
center, was right around the corner from Howe Street
and the Sinclair Centre, which, we fancied, soon
will be renamed for our heroes Reg and Jim,

from Canada's National Post that is appended here,
but at least it shows that gold is becoming a
mainstream issue.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

What's appended here seems awfully unusual -- an
open invitation to an imminent short squeeze in the
gold market, published in the Financial Times, no
