Brodsky and Quaintance: Solution is asset monetization, starting with gold revaluation
9:55a HKT Saturday, June 9, 2012
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
In an outline posted Friday at Zero Hedge, fund managers Lee Quaintance and Paul Brodsky make the case for resolving the world debt crisis with an asset monetization and revaluation based on the upward revaluation of gold by 800 to 1,000 percent, creating lots of money with which government debt could be liquidated and bringing hopeless mortgages and the banks that issued them back to solvency:
The Quaintance and Brodsky outline draws on the paper they published last month and allowed GATA to bring to you here, headlined "Brodsky and Quaintance: Central Banks Aim to Redistribute Gold and Push It Way Up":
Their thinking closely resembles that of the Scottish economist Peter Millar, whose May 2006 study, "The Relevance and Importance of Gold in the World Monetary System," also brought to you by GATA with the author's kind permission, argued that an upward revaluation of from seven to 20 times would be necessary for central banks to avert debt deflation:
Wild as the numbers might seem at first, the current world financial situation is wild too, and the upward revaluation of gold by governments from time to time as they try to escape the consequences of their economic mismanagement and political venality is simply a fact of history, even if it cannot be acknowledged and discussed by many supposed gold market analysts.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada -- Prophecy Platinum Corp. (TSX-V: NKL; OTC-QX: PNIKF; Frankfurt: P94P) is pleased to provide results of full spectrum 6E (Platinum, Palladian, Rhodium, Ruthenium, Osmium, and Iridium) analysis of platinum group elements on the first batch of samples from the company's wholly-owned Wellgreen PGM-Ni-Cu project in the Yukon Territory, Canada.
The company enlisted Activation Laboratories (Actlabs) of Ancaster, Ontario, to conduct a full-spectrum 6E analysis of samples taken from the 2011 drill hole WS11-188. Adding Rh, Ru, Os, and Ir to Pt and Pd increased the total PGE content (6E) by an average of 28 percent, based on a population of 90 samples, most of which are from disseminated sulphide-type mineralization.

Sona Discovers Potential High-Grade Gold Mineralization
at Blackdome in British Columbia -- 13.6g over 1.5 Meters
From a Company Press Release
November 22, 2011
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- With its latest surface diamond drilling program at its 100-percent-owned, formerly producing Blackdome gold mine in southern British Columbia, Sona Resources Corp. has discovered a potentially high-grade gold-mineralized area, with one hole intersecting 13.6 grams of gold in 1.5 meters of core drilling.
"We intersected a promising new mineralized zone, and we feel optimistic about the assay results," says Sona's president and CEO, John P. Thompson. "We have undertaken an aggressive exploration program that has tested a number of target zones. Our discovery of this new gold-bearing structure is significant, and it represents a positive development for the company."
Sona aims to bring its permitted Blackdome mill back into production over the next year and a half, at a rate of 200 tonnes per day, with feed from the formerly producing Blackdome mine and the nearby Elizabeth gold deposit property. A positive preliminary economic assessment by Micon International Ltd., based on a gold price of $950 per ounce over eight years, has estimated a cash cost of $208 per tonne milled, or $686 per gold ounce recovered.
