Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

In the last week GATA has received a couple
of contributions by bank wire, one from
Britain and one from Switzerland. We never
get a full name and address on such
contributions even as we would like to
acknowledge them formally, so if the donors
would contact me at GATAComm@aol.com, I'd
appreciate it.

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer

Who sent those bank wires?

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA Chairman Bill Murphy is hard at work in South
Africa, having arrived there Sunday.

I spoke with him today from Durban, on the Indian
Ocean, and he was thrilled with the reception he has
been getting.

He already has had a long meeting with Gold Fields
CEO Chris Thompson, and has meetings scheduled with
other mining company executives.

or golden messiah?quot;
