Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

In an interview this week for his channel at YouTube, Jay Martin of Cambridge House, sponsor of the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, interviewed mining and entertainment entrepreneur Frank Giustra and got him to repeat his recently expressed belief that the gold price has been manipulated and suppressed, though Giustra says he has only circumstantial evidence, no proof, and doesn't know who is doing the suppression.

"There are good reasons why the gold price needs to be suppressed," Giustra says, citing inflation and excessive debt.

First Majestic Produces Silver and Gold in the United States and Mexico

First Majestic is a publicly traded mining company focused on silver and gold production in Mexico and the United States. The company owns and operates the San Dimas silver and gold mine, the Jerritt Canyon gold mine, the Santa Elena silver and gold mine, and the La Encantada silver mine. In 2022 these mines are projected to produce between 32.2 to 35.8 million ounces of silver equivalent with an all-in sustaining cost of $16.79 to $18.06 per payable silver-equivalent ounce.

For more information about the company, visit:

The company offers a portion of its silver production for sale to the public. Bars, ingots, coins, and medallions are available for purchase online at First Majestic's bullion store at some of the lowest possible premiums:

Of course GATA can provide the proof and identify the perpetrators, and indeed a few years ago supplied Giustra with much of that proof, which is compiled here --

-- but GATA is no longer invited to make presentations at the Vancouver conference. Presumably this is because letting investors know that, as the author and market analyst Jim Rickards said on CNBC in 2009, "When you own gold you're fighting every central bank in the world," does not always facilitate the touting of gold mining stocks at investment conferences.

Also presumably, as a zillionaire Giustra feels he has too much to lose by plainly identifying government as the perpetrator of gold price suppression. But at least he and now even Martin feel obliged to acknowledge the overwhelmingly obvious: that gold's sleepy performance lately amid roaring inflation has been counterintuitive in the extreme and can't be ignored anymore -- except maybe at the Vancouver conference.

Giustra's interview with Martin is a half hour long, with his comments on gold beginning at the 7:35 mark here:

Meanwhile, over at Kitco News, interviewer David Lin questions the former governor of the Bank of Canada, David Dodge, about the bank's liquidation of its gold two decades ago but fails to rise to the spectacular opportunity to ask a former central banker about surreptitious intervention in the gold market by central banks.

Lin's interview with Dodge is 17 minutes long and can be seen at Kitco here:
