Please help us get support from mining companies and World Gold Council
7:17p ET Sunday, March 11, 2012
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):
Now that even some gold fund managers and newsletter writers have started to get suspicious about surreptitious intervention in the gold market by central banks --
-- maybe it's time to try again to get the support of mainstream gold and silver mining companies.
Yes, these companies are especially vulnerable if they start complaining about suppression of precious metals prices. Governments, the instigators of the price suppression, control mining licenses, royalty payment requirements, and enforcement of environmental regulations. And as mining is the most capital-intensive business, miners usually need financing by the biggest investment banks, the agents of central banks that implement the price suppression scheme.

A Rare Opportunity with Collectible Gold Coins
Whose Premiums Are Far Below Normal
Sovereign debt problems in the United States as well as Europe will worsen this year. The mainstream financial media may never report about the likely inflationary consequences of bailouts and "quantitative easing," nor are they likely ever to recommend tangible assets for financial protection. But at Swiss America Trading Corp. we believe that it is no longer a luxury to own gold and silver coins but rather a necessity.
At the moment the public is showing little interest in Double Eagle U.S. $20 gold coins, so the price premiums above the intrinsic melt values (.9675 ounce of gold in each coin) are historically low. The ratio of price to bullion content for these coins has been 2:1 but today it is only about 1.25:1.
This is a real opportunity. So give us a call or e-mail and we will be glad to discuss the potential of these coins and how to use a ratio strategy to increase your gold ounces without money out of pocket.
In the January edition of his Early Warning Report, Richard Maybury writes: "As they are inherently in very limited supply, I believe that high-quality numismatics will become tulips, eventually rising a thousand percent or more in real terms, when money velocity goes into mid-second stage. In late stage, who knows -- 2,000 percent? 3,000?"
All inquiries will receive without charge (while supplies last) our latest book, "The Inflation Deception," as well as our newsletter "Real Money Perspectives."

But there's no point in cowering from governments and investment banks if you're going to be destroyed anyway, and governments and investment banks are not invincible. The price suppression schemes are surreptitious for a reason -- that is, they succeed only through deception of the markets. They can't succeed in the open, for when markets are exposed as rigged, people won't trade there anymore. The growing realization of market rigging explains the worldwide trends toward acquisition of real gold vaulted outside the Western banking system and toward development of trade-settlement mechanisms that avoid the U.S. dollar.
Your secretary/treasurer may do well enough with the functions of the first half of his job but he's not terribly skilled with the functions of the second half insofar as they include fund-raising. So may we ask for your help again?
A few mining companies -- mostly smaller exploration companies -- and a few investment houses have bravely supported GATA over the years but we shouldn't be hitting them up as often as we do. We should be seeking the support of other mining companies and investment houses, and they might consider helping if they heard from their own shareholders and investors.
So if you own shares of stock in precious metals mining companies or invest in the precious metals via a mutual fund, hedge fund, or other investment house, please write to their investor relations office and urge them to consider supporting GATA. You could tell them that GATA has pretty thoroughly exposed, documented, and litigated against the gold and silver price suppression schemes, that you've found GATA's work valuable, that we need and deserve financial assistance, that more information is available from me at CPowell@GATA.org, and that we're happy to make presentations about our work.
Please write especially if you're invested in any mining company that is a member of the World Gold Council --
-- as, unfortunately, the council long has declined to get involved with the issue of gold price suppression, though no issue is more important to the gold mining industry. You also could write to the council at email@example.com and urge it too to start supporting GATA financially.
Painful as it was for precious metals investors, the recent smashdown in the gold and silver markets, so incongruous and counterintuitive, so obviously intended only to knock prices down at a strategic moment for the world financial system rather than to maximize profits on a long position (see the comments by Ross Norman of Sharps Pixley at http://www.gata.org/node/11054), may have been a Pyrrhic victory for the central banks. For it gave their game away.
As always it's for GATA to spread the word. We have plans for that, including speaking roles at conferences in Asia and more litigation here in the United States. We'll make the most of whatever help you can give us, either by contacting mining companies and the World Gold Council or by donating to us directly as described here:

Free Month Subscription to Market Force Analysis for GATA Supporters
Market Force Analysis is a unique, patent-pending approach to commodity market analysis. An algorithm has been developed to extract supply and demand weightings from futures market data. The difference between supply and demand is the market imbalance that is called "market force," so named because it is what drives price. It brings clarity to past market action and predicts market trends. Because it is derived from accurate futures market data it is not subject to the errors inherent in macro-level estimates of supply and demand.
