GATA makes its case at New York museum's gold exhibition

Section: Daily Dispatches

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

In connection with the magnificent new exhibition on gold at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, about which GATA dispatched an Associated Press story to you the other day (, your secretary/treasurer will speak as part of a panel discussion program at the museum from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 6.

The topic will be "21st-Century Challenges in Mining Gold." The discussion will be moderated by James Webster, the exhibition's curator and chairman of the museum's physical sciences division. The other speakers will be Brian Skinner, professor of geology and geophysics at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut; Glenn Miller, professor of natural resources and environmental science at the University of Nevada at Reno; and Geoffrey Plumlee, research geologist for the U.S. Geological Survey.

We'll be speaking in the museum's famous Hall of Reptiles, which probably will not surprise many of your secretary/treasurer's social acquaintances.

Unless you're a scaly brontosaurus yourself (in which case the museum may want to offer you a position), seating at the discussion program will be limited and the museum asks people who would like to attend to make reservations by e-mailing the program's organizer, Ellen Silberman, at

You can learn about the gold exhibition here:

The museum is located at Central Park West and 79th Street in New York City. When gold hits $3,000 an ounce or so, we may be able to think of living in that neighborhood. Until then, the subway stop at the museum will have to do.
