Reginald H. Howe once again has proved himself a world-
class financial analyst and a compelling writer and

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Gold continued to break into the mainstream financial
press today thanks to a huge article in the Sunday Mail
in Britain, accompanied by two photographs, about the
crisis at Ashanti Goldfields. (The article quotes GATA
Chairman Bill Murphy.) GATA considers the Ashanti
problem extremely bullish for gold and the publicity
about it even more so.

GATA Chairman Bill Murphy, who was home in
