At King World News, more evidence of unbacked gold and silver certficates
5p ET Wednesday, April 7, 2010
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):
Eric King of King World News today interviewes GATA board member Adrian Douglas and Canadian precious metal investors Harvey and Lenny Organ about the latter's visit to the Scotia Mocatta bullion vault in Toronto in search of the family's metal and his discovery that there was little metal in the vault and that the family's metal wasn't there at all as it was supposed to be. This is more evidence that many gold and silver certificates have been sold on a fractional-reserve basis -- the assumption that most people won't take possession of their metal and that, as a result, banks can vastly inflate what is imagined to be the world's gold and silver supply, thereby suppressing the price. The interview is about 20 minutes long and you can listen to it here.

Preliminary Feasibility Study Completed for Seabridge Gold's KSM Project
Study Reports Reserves of 30.2 Million Oz. Gold, 7 Billion Lbs. Copper,
133 Million Oz Silver, 210 Million Lbs. Molybdenum
Base Case Life of Mine Cash Operating Costs Estimated at $144/oz. Gold Produced
(Net of Base Metal Credits)
Toronto -- Seabridge Gold Inc. has announced results from a National Instrument 43-101 compliant preliminary feasibility study of its 100-percent owned KSM project in northern British Columbia, Canada. The study was prepared by Wardrop, a Tetra Tech company, a major international engineering and consulting firm.
Seabridge President and CEO Rudi Fronk says, "The study confirms that the KSM project now hosts the largest gold reserve in Canada and one of the largest in the world. KSM is projected to provide an extraordinary mine life of more than 35 years with estimated cash operating costs well below the current average of the major gold producers. Estimated capital costs are in line with those of comparable, large-scale, undeveloped gold-copper projects and KSM has the advantage of being located in a low-risk jurisdiction."
