John Kim: Don't trust Comex or banks with your gold
11:20a ET Wednesday, September 9, 2020
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Financial writer John Kim today argues that it's not safe to keep gold with the New York Commodities exchange or with banks but only with vaulting operations outside the financial system where you're allowed to see your metal and remove it. The risk of confiscation or fraud is too great, Kim writes.
He cites several recent examples where people thought metal was being vaulted for them only to discover that it wasn't.
Kim's commentary is headlined "Why Holding Warrants on Comex Gold Is Foolish" and it's posted at his internet site, Maalamalama.com, here:

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Kodiak Copper Corp. (TSX-V: KDK; OTC: KDKCF) today reported the discovery of a significant high-grade copper-gold extension of the recently discovered Gate Zone at the company's fully owned MPD copper-gold porphyry project in southern British Columbia. The MPD project is accessible year-round from paved highways 5A and 97C.
Chris Taylor, chairman of Kodiak, said: "As compelling as our 2019 discovery of the Gate Zone was, it now appears we had only grazed the margins of a much stronger copper-gold zone that we have now successfully targeted. Our new results include discovery of a central high-grade copper-gold zone within the wider copper-gold mineralized envelope of the Gate Zone. These drill results are among the strongest reported from this well-established copper mining district. Drilling is ongoing and we will be releasing additional results throughout the coming months."
Kodiak President and CEO Claudia Tornquist said: "While we are just beginning to unlock the untapped potential of the MPD project, we view this new discovery as transformative for the project and by extension for Kodiak. Especially remarkable are the new high gold values, which we would have viewed as a successful stand-alone gold discovery in the absence of any copper. Given our 100% ownership of MPD, and its position adjacent to highways with year-round accessibility, we anticipate a very active remainder of 2020 and that 2021 will be our most exciting and productive year so far."
