New Chinese exchange will destroy gold and silver shorts, whistleblower Maguire predicts
8:34a ET Wednesday, July 6, 2011
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):
Silver market manipulation whistleblower Andrew Maguire, whose complaint was brought to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's hearing on the gold and silver markets a year ago March, tells King World News that the new Pan Asia Gold Exchange will create demand that will destroy the gold and silver shorts.
Maguire says: "By creating the first rolling spot contract, Chinese bank customers will for the first time have ease of access to 10-ounce gold contracts in renminbi directly from their bank accounts and with the click of a mouse. ... If just 1 percent of their customers bought a single 10-ounce contract, that would equate to 1,000 tons of physical gold being drawn down."
An excerpt from the interview can be found at the King World News blog here:
Maguire will make his first public appearance at GATA's Gold Rush 2011 conference in London in August:

Prophecy (TSXV: PCY) Secures Russian Far East Seaport Allocation
and Updates Ulaan Ovoo Mine Production
Company Press Release, June 14, 2011
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Prophecy Coal Corp. TSX-V: PCY)(OTCQX: PRPCF)(Frankfurt: 1P2) has arranged with the Port of Sovgavan in the State of Khabarovsk, Russia, so the company will have initial access to port allocation of 25,000 tonnes of coal per month starting this month, potentially expandable to 50,000 tonnes per month, representing 300,000 to 600,000 tonnes annually. Prophecy also will be assigned a coal storage area at the port.
This arrangement provides Prophecy's Ulaan Ovoo thermal coal mine with immediate access to the Asian seaborne export coal markets. Sovgavan is strategically located on the seaboard of the Russian Far East. The port is privately owned and can accommodate seagoing vessels of up to 160 meters in length, with the depth of loading site of 9.5 meters. The port has loading capacity of 6,000 tonnes per day and direct connections to Trans-Siberian railroads and uncongested Russian state highways.
Securing the port opens Prophecy to a significant number of coal buyers, and the company is placing top priority to conclude rail transport within Russia and coal offtake contracts.
Prophecy's Ulaan Ovoo mine commenced production in 2011. So far this year the mine has produced 200,000 tonnes of coal, which are being stockpiled. The average quality is 4,200 kcal/kg NAR with 5 percent ash and 0.5 percent sulphur. Those attributes compare favorably to the coal being purchased by local Russian and Mongolian power plants.
