GATA London conference and hotel registrations are open


5:16p ET Sunday, April 17, 2011

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

Registrations are now being taken for GATA's Gold Rush 2011 conference in London, to be held Thursday-Saturday, August 4-6, at the famous Savoy Hotel (, and the hotel has begun taking reservations for GATA conference participants at a discounted rate.

Admission to the conference will be US$800, $US1,500 for couples. This will cover not only all conference presentations but also a reception on Thursday night, coffee breaks and lunches on Friday and Saturday, and dinner Friday night.

For couples with a member who wants to see a little more of London and a little less of monetary metals advocates, a ticket covering admission just to the reception, the two lunches, and the dinner will be available for US$250.

We hope to offer some family outings in London as well, possibly on Sunday, August 7. More about that later.

... Dispatch continues below ...


Canuc Resources Pursues Ecuador and Nova Scotia Gold Projects

Canuc Resources Corp. (TSX: CDA) has confirmed high-grade gold and the potential for large-tonnage, low-grade copper and gold mineralization at its primary asset, property in the historic Nambija gold mining district in southeastern Ecuador.

Last November Canuc took an option on the Mill Village gold property in southwestern Nova Scotia, which includes two past-producing mines. Canuc plans to begin surface and underground exploration at Mill Village in the next several weeks, financed by $2 million recently raised through a private placement.

To generate immediate income, Canuc is acquiring MidTex Oil and Gas Co., owner of a producing gas well and a lease on 320 acres in Stephens County, Texas.

Canuc's CEO, Gary Lohman, has more than 30 years of experience in the mining industry, primarily as a geologist, and the company's officers include similarly experienced people.

Speakers returning from GATA's Gold Rush 21 conference in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, in 2005 will include:

-- GATA Chairman Bill Murphy.

-- South African gold mining industry expert Peter George.

-- Sprott Asset Management Chairman Eric Sprott.

Bringing the gold price suppression scheme to the attention of influential people around the world, the Gold Rush 21 conference in 2005 sent the gold price up sharply. With its conference in London, home of two major perpetrators of the gold price suppression scheme, the Bank of England and the London Bullion Market Association, GATA plans to increase understanding of the scheme and hasten its downfall. The conference will review where gold has gone amid GATA's hectoring and examine where it might go as it returns to its necessary place at the center of the world financial system.

Gold Rush 21 conference organizer Janet Lee has returned to help organize GATA's London conference along with Howard Fitch of Market Edge Media in Vancouver.

GATA soon will be posting an Internet site dedicated to the London conference but for the moment we've posted the conference invitation here --

-- and you should not wait to register.

Just send an e-mail to with the names, postal addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of all the people you're registering. Specify any registrations that are for just the reception and meals. We'll reply with information about payment and how to make your reservation at the Savoy at the conference rate.

Of course it's not necessary for conference participants to stay at the Savoy but it sure will make things easier for the London police at closing time.

We hope to see many of our old friends and to make many new friends in London -- so many, in fact, that we'd love to have to find out how many free gold market advocates it takes to fill the Albert Hall.

The Gold Standard Now: It Can Work

Today a dollar is worth 80 percent less than it was 40 years ago, and less than 5 percent of its value a hundred years ago. We deserve a dollar that is as good as gold, a dollar that will hold its value from year to year so we can be financially secure and our economy can generate more and better jobs.

For most of America's history, our dollar was literally as good as gold. But on August 15, 1971, our politicians destroyed the link between gold and the dollar. They destroyed the foundations of our economic system.

A new Internet site,, provides news and cutting-edge analysis about this most important issue and explains how the gold standard worked in the past and how it can work in the future. Visit us today:
