Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Alec Hogg, host of the South African radio
program "Classic Business," has written an
essay at www.theminingweb.com about his
on-air interview last week with GATA Chairman
Bill Murphy. The essay does a wonderful job
publicizing GATA's Gold Derivatives Banking
Crisis report, especially to our friends and
potential friends in South Africa. You can
find the essay here:
