Bob Bishop to speak at GATA fundraiser at Vancouver conference

Section: Daily Dispatches

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

There are already hundreds of reasons to come to the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference on January 20 and 21, 2013 -- expert speakers (many of them GATA-friendly), hundreds of exhibitors, and the spectacular beauty and excitement of the city (maybe the only one in Canada that will be above freezing at that time) -- but here's another one for you.

Bob Bishop, recently retired editor of what was the premier monetary metals mining newsleter, Gold Mining Stock Report, will speak at a fundraising cocktail party for GATA at the conclusion of the conference. The party will be held in the Cypress Room at the Pan Pacific hotel (a block from the Vancouver Convention Centre West, where the conference is being held) from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, January 21. There will be free snacks (if you get there before GATA's board does) and a cash bar (ditto), and while there will be no admission charge for the first 10,000 people to show up, please feel free to fill your secretary/treasurer's pockets with depreciating, soon-to-be-valueless fiat currency or bank checks drawn on the same. We'll know how to give it value, as by undertaking new freedom-of-information lawsuits against the U.S. Federal Reserve, Federal Open Market Committee, Treasury Department, and State Department --

-- providing, of course, that there's enough to pay the hotel first.


Prophecy Platinum Intercepts Best Pt+Pd+Au Grades Yet
at Wellgreen Project in Yukon Territory: 5.36 g/t

Company Press Release
Tuesday, September 11, 2012

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Prophecy Platinum Corp. (TSX-V: NKL, OTC-QX: PNIKF, Frankfurt: P94P) announces more results of its 2012 drill program on the company's fully-owned Wellgreen platinum group metals, nickel, and copper project in southwestern Yukon Territory, Canada. Four surface holes and four underground holes all intercepted significant mineralized widths, ranging from 28.5 meters (WS12-201) and up to 459.5 metres (WS12-193). Highlights include WU12-540, which returned 8.9 metres of 5.36 grams per tonne platinum, palladium, and gold; 1.73 percent copper; and 1.01 percent nickel within 304.5 meters of 0.66 g/t platinum-palladium-gold, 0.20 percent copper, and 0.27 percent nickel.

The surface drill program started in June and has completed 16 holes (assays pending for 12 holes) with two rigs now on site. The surface program continues to progress at a steady pace.

Prophecy Chairman John Lee commented: “Wellgreen is a very large nickel, copper, and platinum group metals project with near-surface high-grade zones. High-grade intercepts will be incorporated into resource modeling and mine planning in the pre-feasibility study. We expect further positive drill results from Wellgreen shortly.”

Wellgreen features a low 2.59-to-1 strip ratio, is situated at an altitude of 1,300 meters, and is only 15 kilometers from the two-lane paved Alaska Highway. Those factors significantly minimize the project's indirect costs.

Those who attended GATA's "Anybody Seen Our Gold?" conference in Washington in April 2008 may remember that Bishop was recruited on the spot to substitute for a speaker who had to cancel at the last minute and that, without notes, he both enthralled the crowd and subdued it by predicting that the immediate future would not be good for gold and silver mining shares. This wasn't what everyone was hoping for but it was the truth, for within a few months the HUI gold mining share index had fallen from 450 to 150:

As a result, whatever Bishop has to say now, we need to hear it.

Admission to the conference itself is free for those who register in advance, and the conference has arranged discount rates for attendees at two beautiful hotels next to the convention center, the aforementioned Pan Pacific and the Fairmont Waterfront.

The conference's Internet site is here:

So please join us and Bob Bishop in Vancouver in January and help us keep our organization going -- and secretive, market-rigging central banking on the run.
