Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

Plans are developing for GATA's Gold Rush 2011 conference to be held at the Savoy Hotel in London from Thursday, August 4, through Saturday, August 6.

The Savoy will be the center of the gold (and silver) universe then, as GATA has assembled the top people in the field, including:

-- Gold trader and mining entrepreneur Jim Sinclair, who hasn't spoken at a financial conference in eight years.

-- Eric Sprott and John Embry of Sprott Asset Management, the Toronto investment house that has struck powerful blows against the gold and silver price suppression schemes.

-- GoldMoney founder James Turk, whose digital remonetization of gold may have made him the greatest revolutionary threat to the world's financial establishment.

-- Market analyst James G. Rickards, whose shrewd pro-gold commentaries on financial broadcast networks around the world have broken through the mainstream media's blackout against gold.

-- And London silver trader Andrew Maguire, whose testimony about silver market manipulation, delivered by GATA Chairman Bill Murphy and GATA Board of Directors member Adrian Douglas to the March 25, 2010, hearing of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, triggered silver's upward price spike.

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."

Gold Rush 2011 aims to recreate the incisiveness and camaraderie that characterized GATA's Gold Rush 21 conference in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada, in August 2005, which brought the gold price suppression scheme to a worldwide audience, after which the gold price blasted off from the $400 range. For those who attended Gold Rush 21, Dawson City will remain a once-in-a-lifetime experience at the edge of the Earth, but even the Bank of England and four years of Gordon Brown's premiership haven't made London any less of a destination, and it's a lot easier to get to.

Gold Rush 2011 will begin with a reception on Thursday evening, August 4, before getting down to business on Friday and Saturday. The proceedings will include lunches and coffee breaks on those days and a fancy dinner Friday night. For those inclined to see London from the River Thames, a luncheon cruise is being planned on Sunday for a small additional fee.

While they may not be quite as well known as those cited above, the conference's other speakers will strive to be pretty interesting too:

-- Hugo Salinas Price, president of the Mexican Civic Association for Silver, which is striving to remonetize silver in Mexico, another rich country that, under the influence of Western central banking, insists on being poor.

-- Reginald H. Howe, whose December 2000 lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Boston against the Bank for International Settlements, the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Reserve, and the world's major investment banks (aka Howe vs. All the Money in the World) dragged the gold price suppression scheme into the spotlight.

-- Brian Hinchcliffe, CEO of Kirkland Lake Gold, a former investment banker who saw investment banking's crimes and came over to the side of humanity.

-- Gold market analyst John Brimelow.

-- South African gold expert Peter George.

-- Samex Mining President Jeff Dahl.

-- Market analyst and mining company adviser Peter Grandich.

-- Hinde Capital CEO Ben Davies, whose appearances on financial television have hastened gold's return as money worldwide.

-- Ned Naylor-Leyland, investment director of Cheviot Asset Management in London.

-- Economist and former banker Alasdair Macleod, whose commentaries at his own Internet site,, and at are often called to your attention by GATA.

-- James McShirley, a veteran futures trader and president of Allied Building Center in Sulphur Springs, Indiana.

-- Thom Calandra, writer and researcher for and and partner in Torrey Hills Capital of Del Mar, California.

-- GATA board member Ed Steer, editor of Ed Steer's Gold and Silver Daily letter, published by Casey Research.

-- GATA board member Adrian Douglas, whose statistical studies have documented the market fingerprints of the gold and silver price manipulation schemes.

-- GATA Chairman Bill Murphy.

-- And your secretary/treasurer.

The conference's admission charge is $800, $1,500 for couples. This covers everything, including the reception, lunches, and dinner. A social registration ticket covering only the reception, the lunches, and the dinner is available for $250.

The Savoy is offering discounted room rates for conference participants.

Lewis E. Lehrman on How to Solve the U.S. Debt Problem

Lewis E. Lehrman, chairman of the Lehrman Institute, sponsor of The Gold Standard Now project, advises that to reduce the $1 1/2 trillion U.S. deficit, the Republican Party must initiate an investment program.

Working Americans are not saving, which enables the banks to lead the country into a cycle of debt, leverage, boom, panic, and bust.

Lehrman says: "Eliminating the budget deficit of a trillion and a half dollars cannot be done overnight. The proposal by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan was very dramatic -- one Republican called it radical -- but it was not happily received. The solution, of course, is to design an American program for prosperity, because you can solve these entitlement problems with a growing economy.

"We need a tremendous program of investment, and investment comes from savings. When you pay savers, middle-income professionals and working people, 0 percent at the bank, you are not going to encourage them
to save. Then we are left with a bank cycle of debt, leverage, boom, panic, and bust."
