Sprott lauds GATA in Gold Report interview


2:35p ET Monday, July 11, 2011

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

Sprott Asset Management Chairman Eric Sprott and his daughter, Larisa Sprott, president of the Sprott Money Ltd. coin and bullion distributor, have given a comprehensive interview to Karen Roche and Sally Lowder of The Gold Report, discussing the world financial system, the prospects for the monetary metals, trends in coin and bullion sales -- and GATA.

Eric Sprott most kindly says:

"The GATA people have been a big influence on the increasing interest in gold. They've been incredibly helpful in terms of keeping people focused on what's going on in the precious metals markets. They had a wonderful conference in Dawson City in 2005.

"The people who spoke there -- and who will speak at this GATA conference in London -- are all independent thinkers who aren't swayed by the conventional. They're typically contrarian. You have to work hard to be a contrarian, because you have to win what would seem to be very difficult arguments. They're just top-notch people. When I look back over the last decade, I think those who were skeptical and outspoken are the true heroes.

"If more people had listened to them, they wouldn't have suffered the kind of financial damage that has transpired in the last decade. Certainly, if they owned gold and silver in lieu of any other investment, they would've been better off."

The Gold Report's interview with the Sprotts is headlined "Silver Poised for Power Rally" and you can find it here:


Eric Sprott will speak and Larisa Sprott will represent Sprott Money at GATA's Gold Rush 2011 conference in London in August.

Other speakers include gold advocate and entrepreneur Jim Sinclair, who hasn't spoken at an investment conference in eight years; geopolitical analyst James G. Rickards; GoldMoney founder James Turk; Hugo Salinas Price, president of the Mexican Civic Association for Silver -- and a whole bunch more.

It will be the place to be in the gold and silver world in August and we'd really like to meet old friends and make a lot of new ones there. Won't you consider joining us?

Prophecy (TSXV: PCY) Secures Russian Far East Seaport Allocation
and Updates Ulaan Ovoo Mine Production

Company Press Release, June 14, 2011

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Prophecy Coal Corp. TSX-V: PCY)(OTCQX: PRPCF)(Frankfurt: 1P2) has arranged with the Port of Sovgavan in the State of Khabarovsk, Russia, so the company will have initial access to port allocation of 25,000 tonnes of coal per month starting this month, potentially expandable to 50,000 tonnes per month, representing 300,000 to 600,000 tonnes annually. Prophecy also will be assigned a coal storage area at the port.

This arrangement provides Prophecy's Ulaan Ovoo thermal coal mine with immediate access to the Asian seaborne export coal markets. Sovgavan is strategically located on the seaboard of the Russian Far East. The port is privately owned and can accommodate seagoing vessels of up to 160 meters in length, with the depth of loading site of 9.5 meters. The port has loading capacity of 6,000 tonnes per day and direct connections to Trans-Siberian railroads and uncongested Russian state highways.

Securing the port opens Prophecy to a significant number of coal buyers, and the company is placing top priority to conclude rail transport within Russia and coal offtake contracts.

Prophecy's Ulaan Ovoo mine commenced production in 2011. So far this year the mine has produced 200,000 tonnes of coal, which are being stockpiled. The average quality is 4,200 kcal/kg NAR with 5 percent ash and 0.5 percent sulphur. Those attributes compare favorably to the coal being purchased by local Russian and Mongolian power plants.
