Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

In a discussion last week with Kai Hoffman of Soar Financially, your secretary-treasurer dismissed reports that the People's Bank of China had "stopped" buying gold insofar as it reported not buying any in May for the first time in many months.

Guanajuato Silver Is Reactivating Silver and Gold Mines in Mexico

Guanajuato Silver is a precious metals producer reactivating past-producing silver and gold mines in central Mexico. The company produces silver and gold concentrates from the El Cubo Mines Complex, Valenciana Mines Complex, and the San Ignacio mine. All three mines are located within the state of Guanajuato, which has a 480-year mining history.

Additionally, the company produces silver, gold, lead, and zinc concentrates from the Topia mine in northwestern Durango state. 

With four operating mines and three processing facilities, Guanajuato Silver is one of the fastest growing silver producers in Mexico.

The true location, size, and disposition of official gold reserves, your secretary-treasurer said, are actually the most sensitive state secrets, and GATA consultant Robert Lambourne's monthly exposure of the gold swap position of the Bank for International Settlements shows that at least one central bank is still striving to keep the gold price down.

The discussion is 35 minutes long and can be viewed at YouTube here:
