Bill Murphy of GATA has lawyers working in an attempt to force the Treasury to allow an audit of our gold inventory at Fort Knox plus other holding areas.

The person to verify is a bonded and reputable CPA firm, not any government agency but is that possible? No way Jose!
They'll cite some conflict to national security which they seem to always come up with in order to hide suspicious activities.

Is the voice of the people really heard by its governments concerning the governments finances or stewardship of our gold? The English people were polled as to Gordon Brown's plan to sell a significant portion of Britain's gold some years back and the vote was 5-2 against. Did that stop Gordon? No. Some people have said that he is a puppet of the Fed and Treasury.

So, being realistic, it should continue to be just another very interesting conspiracy theory open for debate.

As to your question "where is everybody?," I believe they are up in Ontario and Quebec and other parts of the world where mining is supported by local government sudsidies.

The State Energy and Natural Resources Committee of the Senate is currently considering changing the 1872 Mining Law or abolishing it, all together.

What has been voted on by Congress already is to levy an 8% royalty mining tax on new mines and a 4% royalty tax on current operating mines in the country. What do you think that will do to start up operations and the existing maginal mines combined with a 30% mining cost inflation factor in place?

I don't believe that in this environment of spiraling mining costs a Senate approval of the proposed mining law changes would effect our company as much as others in California.

I see it effecting more the Idaho-Maryland reactivation in Grass Valley along with Sutter Gold Mines' expected feasibility study following their completion of drilling
just north of Jackson along Highway 49.

Our operation currently mines high grade gold for the jewelry industry along with other small amounts of ore to be poured into dore bars. As everyone knows our high grade sells for many times its gold content. So, I think our position is quite different than the other two.

We might, if the proposed legislation is passed by the Senate(with no presidential veto), be subjected to paying only a royalty on the gold content, but not on the actual sales price premium. This makes us much different but still, we are in a state that has not yet established itself as a proponent for its mining industry.

Hopefully, we will soon receive positive news from the board concerning a financing package.

Bluejay, I value your input, so two questions tonight:

First, there has been some speculation as to whether the reserves in Fort Knox are still there. On the surface, it seems like great fodder for conspiriacy theory. Beneath that, we're all left with a speculative question....a subprime overwriting would seem like cupcake in comparison. Who's to verify?

Next...small cap or no cap, Allegany sure seems like a steal for a speculating developer. It is a sleeping giant. So where is everybody?

Given today's potential return, it would be difficult tie the recent court debacles to future risk.

On March 12, 2008 David Vaughn in his article, "Gold Rules" carried this quote from Boris Sobolev who writes for resoursestockguide.com:

"Instead of trying to guess tops and bottoms, the best strategy is to continue to accumulate bullion as well as shares of junior producers, exploration and development companies on weakness. Gold('s) price is going much higher in the coming years and the prices of undervalued junior stocks are going to explode as they become targets for acquisition. A few short years down the road, the trepidations experienced today by investors in small cap gold stocks will look quite silly."

You are correct in this respect.

But considering the real impact from mining cost inflation which I'm sure is running at over 30% now, what is the "real benefit" of not pulling the gold out of the ground??

Every day that is wasted in not receiving funding for the purchase of equipment and doing the necessary development work of our proposed project effects the value of our gold inventory in the ground until such time that gold outpaces the current inflationary spiral.

Our country is being run by a bunch of morons and we will pay the price in the end.

The following are a few excerpts from Mr. Jim Sinclair's jsmineset.com's website tonight.

Bernanke And His Talking Head Fan Club

The talking heads noted Bernanke's repitition of the word risk more times in today's presentation than any other since he became chairman.

Outside of one exception, I have never heard such rank stupidity in all my life. The worst part is these photo opportunities gangs really think what they say is intelligent.

With this thinking leading the USA by running the economic show there is a chance we will repeat a large percent of the Weimar experiment.


Today's biggest huh?

Regulators lifted the caps on Fanny and Freddy(Mac) so they could buy more mortgages. Fanny and Freddie are both the slowest train wreck in market history.

Both are loaded with failed derivatives which they have been trying to evaluate for more than 18 months. They are both losing big money and they have just gotten permission to go deeper and deeper into the OTC derivative and debt hole.

God help us all.

In case you haven't been told yet by the media, the price of silver is exploding.

It wasn't too long ago that mention was made here of an important breakout to the upside on the silver price at $15.50. The price now is $19.30.

Does anyone get the feeling that smart people are turning in their dollars for precious metals as the country's financial meltdown picks up steam?

The Gold/Silver ratio had been heavy on the chart at 53.00 and now gravity is taking over. If the ratio breaks 45 all hell will break loose for silver to the upside.

Just a reminder, as gold is making new highs this evening expect the anti-gold establishment to start bad mouthing it again.

It wasn't long ago that an article in the Wall Street Journal attacked gold's price on Monday, November 12, 2007.

The story was entitled, "Gold Record Is Distant Prospect."

The story was staged in an attempt to hold gold back from bettering its indirectly stated January 1980 high of $873.

Melainie Burton brought up the fact that gold is a far cry from its inflation adjusted record which she states is $2,250. Whose inflation index was she using?

No mention in the article that western central banks have been dumping gold into the market for years.

In a concerted effort of attack on gold the metal's price fell the following Monday to $816.80. Again, be prepared for continuing propaganda as gold has broken above recent highs and is positioning itself for an assault at the $1,000 level.

The financial health of our company would be significantly enhanced if these fiat crazed publications along with government employees had done what they were hired to do rather than depressing the price of gold and recklessly ruining the true value of people's investments in gold and gold companies.

More than our wealth being compromised by a puppetmaster is the sad fact that Russia's, China's and India's people are being afforded the opportunity to import gold at discount values. These people are holding it in the form of jewelry and central bank reserves, the very same gold that used to be at Fort Knox.

The gold at Fort Knox is no longer there. If it is, then send in an independent auditor!

Gold is currently making another all time higher.

This is what a major bull market is all about, continuing higher prices into the future.

You could make the point that our gold in the ground has risen in value too but so has inflation. The bottom line is how much money will it take to produce an ounce of gold and at what price can that ounce be marketed? In the future, inflation will increase and so should the gold price.

In our life time we will see prices of $200 a barrel for oil and possibly, $300 according to a money manager at Sprott Asset Management Group in Toronto.

The cost inflation basis for mining expenses is exploding. In 2006 they were up nearly 30% for North American miners. I can't imagine their being lower for 2007 and going into the future.

It continues to make sense in owning gold coins as hyperinflation appears ready to rise its ugly head.

Remember what happened during the Weimar Republic and some of the stories concerning the public's inability to mentally cope with daily price adjustments concerning the purchase of their necessities.

Going forward whether it be in the mining business or your own personal lifes, the realistic inflation factor needs to be given serious consideration. Believing the CPI figures will only get you into trouble.

The CPI figures are falsified to keep the moral inflation adjusted checks from becoming reality for the many millions of Social Security recepients.

The real rate of inflation may be in the 18% to 20% category. If the Social Security check amounts are being raised based only on the government's skewed CPI Index of 3% or 4%, who is getting screwed?

More propaganda from the news papers, this time from USA TODAY. The negative jab to gold was presented in the article, "Striking gold online is easy, but buyers beware."

The writer, Matt Krantz, in the USA edition for Monday morning says, "While it(gold) may be used as a hedge in times of trouble, gold, historically, hasn't been a good investment, and many financial advisors don't advise holding much, if any. But I understand the animal of investing speculation, and it's hard to resist piling into an asset when it's rising and everything else is sinking."

All this was in response to an unidentified source for the question, Is there a way to monitor the price of gold online? A simple answer would have been yes, go to http://www.kitco.com but instead the question was used as an opportunity to attack gold in the press once more.

Mr. Krantz professes to be an expert in "animal spirits of investing speculation." What's that suppose to mean?

It appears that Mr. Krantz knows very little of monetary history of which gold is the center piece as he attributes its growing strength to animal spirits when he should have been more responsible.

Echoing Bluejay tonight:

I call on the principal board member to chime in here. (Am I also refering to the principal share holder, I think.)

If I'm wrong in my facts on who's "who", PLEASE correct me and retract this entry from the forum page.!!!

Out here in the flat-lands of the Sacramento Valley, I dream of an assault on the veins of our mine. It seems like a win-win situation is for a major share-holder to step to the plate, invest in development.

My brain tells me it's not Mike, since he's stuck his neck out most likely beyond his means, and in defense of this posture. I, for one, am behind his defense of the mine, and will stand with him all the way on the legal front and all the way into development. Everyone who's read the Forum knows this.

The big X-factor is for the entity waiting to jump in with an extremely promising outcome, to jump now...essentially investing equity in the value underground. Who best, than someone to embrace their own value?

I wish it were me. If I could, I would.

Gold/XAU Ratio 4.91

Gold has finally elected to take a rest after laboring above the $930 level for some days now. Whether it was just normal profit taking or aggressive short selling by the bullion banks will probably be discussed by Dan Norcini at jsmineset.com in a few days or so.

Usually, large dollar drops in the golden metal are primarily engineered by the Fed or Treasury through their bullion bank lackies on the paper gold COMEX market in New York.

The anti-gold establishment is forever creating nagativity and forever searching for it to suppress the metal from seeking its natural level or value.

According to James Turk who is the founder and chairman of GoldMoney.com The value of gold is "viewed in nominal dollars, but nominal dollars provide a distorted picture."

"After all, everyone knows that because of inflation a dollar today purchases much less than it did twenty-eight years ago, so clearly $850 today(currently $907.90) does not have the purchasing power it did back then. The question therefore arises, what price does gold have to reach in inflation adjusted dollars to equal the purchasing power of eight hundred fifty 1980-dollars?

The full content of James Turk's recent thoughts can be read on kitco.com under the article heading, "The Real Gold Price."

There is an extremely revealing chart that is contained in Mr. Turk's presentation that clearly depicts that gold is way under valued compared to the inflationary growth pressures, especially, since the 1980 time period.

Mr. Turk sums up a Real Price of Gold(CPI Adjusted) chart using the original CPI(figures provided by ShadowStats.com) from 1980 and the currently changed CPI Index that has been evolving since that time by saying:

"There are a couple of important conclusions from the above chart. First, gold at its present price of $900 today(currently $907.90) is still very cheap. In other words, it is a long way from the purchasing power an ounce of gold achieved in January 1980."

"Second, both measures on the above chart show that the dollar is losing purchasing power every month. So if gold in the future were to reach a $6,255 price, the inflation between now and then would require gold to reach an even higher price to equal the purchasing power it had in January 1980.

Albert Einstein's philosophy of a disturbed mind is a person or group of people repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Selling gold to prop-up a currency based on promises and promises only, does not work and has never worked in all of the world's history and will not work anytime in the future.

What works is that it buys the Fed and the banks more time to ream the general public out of their wealth.

The BIS reports that the world derivatives market has grown to be over $500 trillion in a time period when the derivative instruments are failing, fueling a financial meltdown.

The only way to prevent yourself from becoming a serf in the approaching new feudal system as a result of the continuing redistribution of wealth from the growing poor to the top 1% or so in this country is through gold ownership.

Above all, you do not want, as Jim Sinclair has been repeatedly stating lately, any financial intermediaries between you and your gold or any other important inflation protected assets.

The American people are basicaly sudsidizing immoral criminals that are methodically ruining their currency and basically burdening them with a heavy tax through inflation that no one wants to talk to you about including on the presdential debates.

Some good news for the mine is that the price of silver apparently has surmounted the important $16.50 level.

Although, some silver comes out of the ground with the 16-1 ore it's not that much, but every little bit will help.

When will the Board reward its patient shareholders before inflation eats them alive? The mine has inflation problems of their own but the mine holds gold, the currency of the world.

Can the Board please make some decisions that will bring gold out of the mine?

National Bank(Canada) Boosts Gold Target to $1,500 US

John Morrissy Tuesday, January 29th Canwest News Service

"National Bank Financial boosted its target on the price of gold to $1,500 US within the next 12 to 18 months as bullion reasserts its status as a safe haven in troubled times."

"With bullion having broken through its previous record nominal price of $878 in January 1980, it's time to revisit our outlook and reiterate our view that gold is poised for a comeback as an investment haven," National Bank chief economist Clement Gignac said in a research note.

"Investor confidence has been shaken by writedowns of more than $100 billion(this is just the start) announced by large banks around the world." Gignac said

"Unfortunately, the U.S. recession expected by many observers this year must be expected to swell that number in the months."

As well, the U.S. Federal Reserve's 75-basis point cut last week "tends to underline the seriousness of the situation" in global capital markets, with analysts predicting a further rate cut of up to 50 basis points on Wednesday.

With borrowing rates falling below the rate of inflation, gold should be well bid, Gignac said, as negative real interest rates have historically been a boon to its price.


In an extremely well written and educational article that was presented at Kitco. com on January 21, 2008 Dr. Antal Fekete president of the Gold Standard University states the following in the entitled article, "Gold: How High Is High?":

"Gold is the senior monetary metal(silver being the junior). This has nothing to do with denials, derclarations, and desires of devaluation-happy governments. It has to do with the fact that the value of gold, unlike the value of other earthy wares, depends far less on scarcity, and is threatened far less by increasing supply. One may even say that the value of gold is exempt from the effect of the law of supply and demand."

"Often the rising of gold causes a contraction of supply. A blow-off may indeed cause a withdrawal of all offers to sell. After that happens, gold is not for sale at any price. But again, a blow-off may bring out an avalanche of supply. The essence of the value of gold, however, is stability. We conclude that the price of gold has nothing to do with the value of gold."

Dr Fekete in conducting session three of Gold Standard University Live to be held in Dallas, Texas, from February 11 through 17. For further information contact him at GSUL@t-online.hu or details about the session can be found on the website: www.professorfekete.com/GSUL.asp

Dr. Fekete states, Be part of the uplifting undertaking to resurrect monetary science. Discover the truth about money as the giants of monetary science, Adam Smith, Carl Menger and others have handed it down to us, before bribe and blackmail have overtaken the search for and dissemination of knowledge in economics.

Dr. Fekete nearly concludes the main article with the following powerful paragraph:

The world's finance capital is on its way to total annihilation. The essence of the subprime crisis was not the slack of lending standards. The essence is that the worm of doubt is eating confidence away. Banks no longer trust the promises of other banks. Under a gold standard trust could quickly be restored by paying out gold. That's what gold is for, to restore trust whenever doubt arises. But gold has been removed from the banking system. Now irredeemable promises can only be redeemed by issuing more irredeemable promises. In such a system the erosion of confidence cannot be checked. Lack of confidence becomes cumulative. It is like kicking garbage upstairs. When the attic can take no more, the day of reckoning has dawned, and the garbage comes crashing down."

The country's financial management is being run by a group of incompetents.

Keep listening and believing in them while the Fed takes you for a ride with your eroding purchasing power and in the end, you will be poor.

Gold is the international currency. Get out of dollars and dollar related items as fast as you can.

House prices are due to decrease 15% in the year 2009. At a 20% inflation rate that equates to a 35% drop in the purchasing value of the average person's key asset.

If you don't have, at least, a good portion of your assets devoted to ownership in gold and some silver coins you may end up being a statistic as the great majority of people's wealth is being washed down the river as a result of financial mismanagement of our elected representatives and our so-called leaders plus an out of control central bank that worsens inflation daily by creating more dollars out of thin air.

This comment is posted on Jim Sinclair's site


It conncerns S.African mines being shut down for safety reasons. We know the gold is there...where's our financial angel?

These type of issues (see article below) are going to impact the supply side of the minerals industry for decades. There are very few new mines coming on stream and the ones that are producing are running full bore to capitalize on high metal prices.These mines are getting deeper, more dangerous to work in, and more expensive to operate, which is a scenario for production shortfalls in the future.

South African gold production has been declining steadily over the past few decades and if this trend continues it will soon lose its first place position - if it hasn't already. In 1970, South Africa accounted for two thirds of global output; now it's around 11%, the same as Australia. Since 1995, its gold production has dropped by half.

Anyone who feels that supply-demand fundamentals won't affect the gold market has got his/her head in the sand. We hear so much these days about oil shortages but nobody seems to pay attention to mineral commodities which underpin all industrialized economies. When you look at the price of mineral commodities today in real terms they are still relatively cheap by historical standards. There's still plenty of room for catchup and when that happens it will be a sight to behold.

Now if we could just get people interested in the positive aspects of the mine such as the people who run it know how to find gold & there is lots left to find and they are ready to get down in there and get it.The stock on the open market is at .75 cents & it's worth more then that,the need is to get people to start investing,the more people go to Yahoo MSN AOL Google and all the other financial browsers & just look at the OSTO stock it registers a hit then go to the message board and give it a strong buy with your reason why you think that and that will register hit,if enough people do it more and more people will look at it.
I left one on Yahoo on the 2nd & am still waiting for someone to rate it and even that would help.
The positive needs to be played up & i am convinced that the 16 to One will put California back on the map as a gold producing State.

At this moment, gold is at: $877.50. A new record. The Experts are saying that a triple threat is what's driving the price of gold up. The subprime fiasco, a soft dollar and hundred dollar oil. I like the idea of turning some soft dollars into hard gold. I think that's what the founding fathers had in mind when they wrote the constitution.
