Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The press release appended here shows how easily
some of GATA's friends are turning gold back into
a practical currency. The release also publicizes
another Cambridge House conference that may be of
interest to GATA supporters.

Vancouver, B.C., Feb. 17 -- Cambridge House International

ever such type of transaction.
