Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Tim Wood of www.TheMiningWeb.com and I, on behalf
of GATA, have had an exchange in writing that you
may find interesting. GATA is especially grateful
to Tim and The Mining Web for their invitation to
participate. You can find the exchange here:

If that link doesn't work, go to:

http://www.theminingweb.com

Then click on "Gold" at the top left, and you'll see the
menu of essays.

Tim's essay is (at this hour) the third item from the
top, "Gold, GATA, Damascus, and a Journalist."

My reply is the item directly below that, "GATA reply
to Tim Wood."

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
