Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

A column in the London Daily Telegraph this week
elaborates on the issue raised the other day by Ted
Butler at www.gold-eagle.com -- whether the bankers to
the mining industry have taken some of their clients
for a very costly ride.

The column follows.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Three items of interest tonight:

1) A statement by the managing director of Anglogold,
Kevin Williams, about the third Bank of England gold
auction, scheduled for next Monday. Williams says
Anglogold, the world's largest gold miner, is considering
bidding. Let's hope AU does so and thereby strikes
another blow for the industry, as AU's chief executive,

Next auction, more on hedging, and Golden View

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

After sending to you yesterday Adrian Day's essay
about hedging in the gold mining industry, dated
November 18 and taken from Adrian Day's Global
Analyst, I noticed some posts at Internet bulletin
boards attributing Day's hedge ratings and stock
recommendations to GATA.

The same kind of thing happened the other day after I

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The following essay about hedging by the financial
commentator Adrian Day, posted three days ago,
may be pretty elementary for you in some respects,
but his evaluation of some major companies according
to their hedge books may interest you.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Ted Butler, who often comments on the precious metals
markets, has posted an important essay at www.Gold-
Eagle.com. It makes a strong and documented case that
some major gold mining companies have been swindled by
their bankers and that the shareholders of these companies
essentially have been expropriated. It's must reading and

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Here's another excellent essay by financial analyst,
Harvard-trained lawyer, and former mining company
executive Reginald H. Howe at his web site,
www.goldensextant.com. Howe describes how gold
interests have failed to handle gold in ways that would
increase its financial utility and general value. Let's
hope that a few take the hint. You might help them by

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The following story, distributed today by Dow Jones
Newswires, suggests that the bullion banks have been
burned by the gold-carry trade and aren't eager to get
back into it. It may be a straw in the winds of change.

Bullion banks retreat from gold arbitrage

11p EST Sunday, November 7, 1999

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

I think you'll recognize in this article from South
Africa's Business Report a lot of what GATA has been
saying in recent weeks. The bullion banks are the
enemies of both gold and their own clients, the gold
mining companies. But can the gold mining companies
ever stand up to those who control their credit lines?

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Here are a few interesting articles.

The first two were published Sunday in The Telegraph in
Britain, written by the newspaper's financial editor,
Bill Jamieson. One of the articles makes reference to
the campaign GATA has begun to get answers from the
U.S. Federal Reserve Board and Treasury Department
about their policy and actions in regard to gold.
