Jim Sinclair will speak at GATA's Gold Rush 2011 conference in London


11:45p ET Monday, April 18, 2011

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Gold mining entrepreneur Jim Sinclair -- chairman of Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corp., veteran gold and commodities trader, and proprietor of the free Internet site of financial market information for the gold community, JSMineSet.com -- will speak at GATA's Gold Rush 2011 conference in London on August 4-6.

For a decade now Sinclair has fearlessly and steadfastly predicted gold's ascent against the forces of price suppression and market propaganda, and he repeatedly has put his money where his mouth is in pursuit of gold's renewed recognition as the international currency. Back in 2004, as gold climbed its wall of worry to reach $400 per ounce, Sinclair arranged for his readers what might have been called the "Sinclair put" on the purchase of 1-ounce Vienna Philharmonic gold bullion coins from Monex Precious Metals in Newport Beach, California. If gold still wasn't above $400 a year hence, Sinclair pledged, he would buy the coins at that price from any disappointed reader. Emboldened by the Sinclair put, your secretary/treasurer bought 10 such coins -- and, of course, along with other Sinclair readers, wishes he had bought more. But that is only a part of the gold community's debt to Sinclair.

Sona Drills 85.4g Gold/Ton Over 4 Metres at Elizabeth Gold Deposit,
Extending the Mineralization of the Southwest Vein on the Property

Company Press Release, October 27, 2010

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Sona Resources Corp. reports on five drillling holes in the third round of assay results from the recently completed drill program at its 100 percent-owned Elizabeth Gold Deposit Property in the Lillooet Mining District of southern British Columbia. Highlights from the diamond drilling include:

-- Hole E10-66 intersected 17.4g gold/ton over 1.54 metres.

-- Hole E10-67 intersected 96.4g gold/ton over 2.5 metres, including one assay interval of 383g of gold/ton over 0.5 metres.

-- Hole E10-69 intersected 85.4g gold/ton over 4.03 metres, including one assay interval of 230g gold/ton over 1 metre.

Four drill holes, E10-66 to E10-69, targeted the southwestern end of the Southwest Vein, and three of the holes have expanded the mineralized zone in that direction. The Southwest Vein gold mineralization has now been intersected over a strike length of 325 metres, with the deepest hole drilled less than 200 metres from surface.

"The assay results from the Southwest Zone quartz vein continue to be extremely positive," says John P. Thompson, Sona's president and CEO. "We are expanding the Southwest Vein, and this high-grade gold mineralization remains wide open down dip and along strike to the southwest."

Despite his prominence in the financial, mining, and precious metals fields, Sinclair has not spoken at a conference in more than five years, so GATA is especially thrilled that he will join us in London, along with Eric Sprott and John Embry of Sprott Asset Management, consulting firm Omnis Inc.'s James G. Rickards, London silver trader and CFTC whistleblower Andrew Maguire, Hinde Capital CEO Ben Davies, and many other leading figures in the precious metals business and the movement for free precious metals and currency markets.

At our London conference GATA plans to increase understanding of the gold price suppression scheme and hasten its downfall, right in the face of two of its major perpetrators, the Bank of England and the London Bullion Market Association. The conference will review where gold has gone amid GATA's hectoring over the last 12 years and examine where gold might go as it returns to its proper place at the center of the world financial system.

We also aim to have some fun in a spectacular, historic, and heroic city that has been crucial to the rise and survival of Western civilization -- even if some of us could have done without George III, a few imperial wars, and Twiggy.

Admission to the conference will cost US$800, US$1,500 for couples, which will cover all conference presentations as well as a reception on Thursday night, August 4, coffee breaks and lunches on Friday and Saturday, August 5 and 6, and dinner Friday night, August 5. A ticket covering only the reception and meals is available for US$250.

The conference venue hotel, the famous Savoy on the Strand adjacent to the River Thames --


-- is offering a discounted room rate to GATA conference attendees.

To register for the conference, please send your name(s), postal address, and telephone number to LondonConference@GATA.org. Our conference staff will reply with registration and hotel reservation information. A more complete list of conference speakers can be found here --


-- and we'll advise further as plans for the conference develop.

Jim Sinclair's participation shows that Gold Rush 2011 in London will be the center of the precious metals universe in August, a unique and memorable event, just like GATA's Gold Rush 21 conference in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada, six years ago. You'll be glad you were a part of it. Please join us if you can.

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
