Why this gold boom will be so much bigger than the last
10:42a ET Friday, September 2, 2011
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Geologist and mining entrepreneur Keith Barron, whose success with Aurelian Resources in Ecuador remains the envy of the mining industry, today tells King World News that the current gold boom will be so much bigger than the last one because so much more of the world will be involved with it and because central bank intervention against gold has been encouraging short positions for so long and now there isn't enough metal to go around. An excerpt from the interview is posted at the King World News blog here:
