Vancouver conference is a success for GATA

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The Cambridge House Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, which concluded Monday, was a great success for GATA, what with our panel-discussion presentation being extended for 15 minutes and with Sprott Asset Management's John Embry devoting a large part of his presentation to expressing his support for GATA. We expect to make the text of Embry's presentation available to you soon.

The conference drew nearly 10,000 people, apparently the largest precious metals conference ever held in North America, and reaction to GATA's message was overwhelmingly favorable.

The conference concluded with GATA's reception at the Pan Pacific hotel, probably the best-attended we've had here.

During the conference we distributed a thousand copies of the advertisment we expect to publish in The Wall Street Journal in the next two weeks --

-- as well as hundreds of invitations to GATA's Washington conference in April --

-- and our delegation talked to scores of investors about the central bank scheme to suppress the gold price.

GATA next will be participating in Cambridge House's conference in Phoenix in February, about which you can learn here:

Our work in Vancouver will explain the lack of dispatches over the last few days. Please forgive that and trust that the GATA delegation was doing a lot more working than partying.

Today we travel home and regret that we won't be able to do much hand-holding on a day that is likely to be especially nasty in the U.S. markets. (We also regret that nobody will be holding our hands either.) But as Jim Sinclair has said often, on some days it's best just to walk away from the computer instead of letting it scare you to death. We will win.
