Newmont president to address October CMRE meeting in New York

Section:

3:49p ET Friday, August 4, 2006

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The fall dinner meeting of the Committee for Monetary Research and Education, to be held in New York City on Thursday evening, October 19, will have some speakers of special interest to gold and silver investors. Among them:

-- Pierre Lassonde, president of Newmont Mining Corp.

-- Paul van Eeden, precious metals newsletter writer and international lecturer.

-- Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors, whose market commentaries are often featured at metals-oriented Internet sites.

-- Alan Brown of Aurumbank Inc., who may be best known for the gold and financial market commentaries of Professor von Braun of the Rocket School of Economics.

As is customary, the CMRE meeting will be held at the beautiful Union League Club at 38 East 37th St. in Manhattan, just a few blocks south -- easy walking distance -- of Grand Central Station. The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. with a cocktail hour and get down to business at 5. Dinner will be served at 6 and things usually wrap up at about 9:30 p.m.

Your secretary/treasurer and other GATA partisans plan to attend, but don't worry; we're always very well-behaved, even when people connected to the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department are speaking. But if there is enough interest afterwards, we'll lead a march downtown to the corner of Broad and Wall streets to protest naked shorting, and with luck we'll still have our clothes on.

Tickets are $155 each for CMRE members and their spouses and $165 for others. Reservations are necessary and should be made with CMRE President Elizabeth Currier here:
