Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

While CME Group, operator of the New York Commodities Exchange, and the London Bullion Market Association have been proclaiming in recent days that gold supplies are ample, Bullion Star researcher Ronan Manly discloses today that CME Group last week told a completely different story to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

Manly cites a CME Group filing with the commission estimating that half or more of the "eligible" gold reported in Comex-approved vaults may have been placed there without any intent to connect it with futures trading -- that it may be vaulted simply as long-term investment.

Asante Gold pursues high-margin, low-capex projects
in Ghana, Africa's largest and safest gold producer

Asante Gold Corporation (CSE:ASE / Frankfurt: 1A9 / U.S.OTC:ASGOF) is focused on developing high-margin, low capital-expense gold projects in Ghana, Africa's largest and safest gold producer.

Our experienced team members have developed 18 million ounces of gold resources in Ghana and have managed its largest underground mine.

We plan to develop our projects in a safe and environmentally sustainable way using new green technology and methods.The first mine we plan to build, Kubi, will be powered by a four-megawatt solar plant.

We believe gold is the only real money and is the basis of all money. We believe in sharing our future earnings with our shareholders. We invite you to join with us to help us finance and grow in this new 2020 super bull gold market. Visit us here:

Manly writes: "The importance of this CME admission cannot be overstated. What the Comex has now revealed to the CFTC is that there is far less physical gold available in the New York vaults that can be used for gold futures contract deliveries, because the CME, in its own estimate revision, has just slashed the largest deliverable supply category by half."

Manly's report is headlined "Comex Bombshell -- Most Eligible Vaulted Gold Has Nothing to Do with Comex" and it's posted at Bullion Star here:
