The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee is pleased
to announce that James Turk will be one of the
speakers at the GATA Africa Gold Summit in
Durban, South Africa, on May 10, 2001.

The summit will be held at the Durban Hilton
Hotel and the Durban Conference Center.

James joins Reg Howe, Frank Veneroso, and me
as speakers. Announcements will be made in the
near future about other speakers.

In 10 days invitations will go out to African
mining ministers, gold producers, South African
political, business, and mining union leaders, and
the world press.

The summit's agenda will be to expose the
manipulation of the gold market and to offer an
action plan to end it.

James Turk's quot;Smoking Gunquot; essay was included
in the material I distributed during my journey
through South Africa last month. It also was sent
to Lawrence Lindsey, economic adviser to
President Bush. It may be what prompted
Lindsey's response to GATA.
