Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Despite trying for almost as long as we have been in business and holding a conference there, GATA has failed to generate much interest among government officials, mining companies, investment houses, and labor organizations in South Africa, which used to be the world's leading gold producer.

Storage and Withdrawal of Gold with Bullion Star in Singapore

Bullion Star is a Singapore-registered company with a one-stop bullion shop, showroom, and vault at 45 New Bridge Road in Singapore.

Bullion Star's solution for storing bullion in Singapore is called My Vault Storage. With My Vault Storage you can store bullion in Bullion Star's bullion vault, which is integrated with Bullion Star's shop and showroom, making it a convenient one-stop shop for precious metals in Singapore.

Customers can buy, store, sell, or request physical withdrawal of their bullion through My Vault Storage® online around the clock. Storage rates are competitive.

For more information, please visit Bullion Star here:

It long has seemed to your secretary/treasurer that South African government officials are less interested in advancing the prosperity of their country than they are in serving its former colonial masters and then retiring to Mayfair in London.

But for about a decade now west African countries altogether have been producing more gold than South Africa and thus are even more exploited by the gold price suppression policies and practices of the developed countries and their central banks. So your secretary/treasurer has been delighted to accept an invitation to speak at this month's Gold Week Africa conference, to be based in Lagos, Nigeria, and held via the internet Monday through Thursday, February 15-18.

Conference speakers and participants will include government officials, mining company executives, investors, business people, market analysts, and representatives of civil society organizations. Among them will be GATA's old friend Chris Marcus of Arcadia Economics.

Participation in the conference is free upon registration.

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc.

GATA will receive a commission on each case of GATA-label wine sold. So if you like wine and buy it anyway, why not buy it in a way that supports our work to achieve free and transparent markets in the monetary metals?
