Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Reginald H. Howe, Harvard-trained lawyer and former
mining executive, and sole proprietor of
www.GoldenSextant.com, has analyzed Barrick Gold's
announcement Monday about its hedging, and observes
that the company bought only "virtual" gold, paper gold
-- and well may have done so with the help of the U.S.
Treasury Department's Exchange Stabilization Fund.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

If you're not sick yet of analysis of Monday's
developments in gold, you may enjoy this interesting
post by the always interesting Ted Butler at
www.kitco.com. Butler's analysis has paralleled GATA's
for some time. Here he looks closer at Barrick's hedge
book revision than I've seen anyone do so far.

Please post this as seems useful.

Today''s gold market commentary by Bill Murphy

Section:

9:15p EST Monday, February 7, 2000

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Here are two outstanding essays on the recent activity
in the gold market by Frank Veneroso and John Brimelow
of Veneroso Associates, probably the world's most
expert analysts of gold supply. The essays are prefaced
with some background about Veneroso and his firm.

They conclude that only government manipulation of the

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The foremost analyst of world gold supplies, Frank A.J.
Veneroso of Veneroso Associates, addresses the question
of government manipulation of the gold market in the
essay that follows. He concludes that such manipulation
very well may be going on and that it will make the explosion
of the gold price even more violent.

GATA is grateful to Veneroso for his permission to
