Alasdair Macleod: Gold bullion flowing from West to East
3:55p ET Sunday, October 21, 2012
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
The transfer of gold from Western central banks to Eastern central banks in recent years amounts to a policy of price suppression by the former, GoldMoney research director Alasdair Macleod writes today. He says Western nations thus "are left with no 'Plan B' in the event of a monetary crisis. A global collapse of paper money, which is inevitable if current monetary policies are not reversed, will give Asians considerable wealth relative to the rest of us. History will surely judge the central bankers' promotion of ephemeral paper at the expense of gold in the harshest terms."
Of course one might argue that the gold price suppression scheme of the Western central banks is their "Plan B" and that it has more or less been working, cushioning the decline of Western currencies, and that the Western central banks will need "Plan C" when the gold run out. But it's still hard to argue with Macleod's conclusion. His commentary is headlined "Gold Bullion Flowing from West to East" and it's posted at the GoldMoney Internet site here:

Prophecy Platinum Intercepts Best Pt+Pd+Au Grades Yet
at Wellgreen Project in Yukon Territory: 5.36 g/t
Company Press Release
Tuesday, September 11, 2012
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Prophecy Platinum Corp. (TSX-V: NKL, OTC-QX: PNIKF, Frankfurt: P94P) announces more results of its 2012 drill program on the company's fully-owned Wellgreen platinum group metals, nickel, and copper project in southwestern Yukon Territory, Canada. Four surface holes and four underground holes all intercepted significant mineralized widths, ranging from 28.5 meters (WS12-201) and up to 459.5 metres (WS12-193). Highlights include WU12-540, which returned 8.9 metres of 5.36 grams per tonne platinum, palladium, and gold; 1.73 percent copper; and 1.01 percent nickel within 304.5 meters of 0.66 g/t platinum-palladium-gold, 0.20 percent copper, and 0.27 percent nickel.
The surface drill program started in June and has completed 16 holes (assays pending for 12 holes) with two rigs now on site. The surface program continues to progress at a steady pace.
Prophecy Chairman John Lee commented: “Wellgreen is a very large nickel, copper, and platinum group metals project with near-surface high-grade zones. High-grade intercepts will be incorporated into resource modeling and mine planning in the pre-feasibility study. We expect further positive drill results from Wellgreen shortly.”
Wellgreen features a low 2.59-to-1 strip ratio, is situated at an altitude of 1,300 meters, and is only 15 kilometers from the two-lane paved Alaska Highway. Those factors significantly minimize the project's indirect costs.
