Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA consultant Robert K. Landis has published
at GoldenSextant.com an updated examination of
Barrick Gold's hedge book in response to what seem
to be the company's efforts to respond to his original
commentary on the company back in May, "Readings
from the Book of Barrick." The essence of it all still
seems to be that while Barrick is making some
interesting and possibly pro-gold changes in its hedge
book, it is nearly impossible to know what you're really
buying when you buy Barrick shares.

You can find Bob's new commentary here:
