Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
In response to an inquiry from GATA, the International Monetary Fund today
told the office of U.S. Rep. John B. Larson, D-Connecticut, that it has not
sold, leased, or lent gold this year and, indeed, has not done so since 1999.
The IMF referred Larson's office to three documents for further
1) IMF Gold Sales -- Frequently Asked Questions:http://www.imf.org/External/NP/EXR/faq/goldfaqs.htm#q2
2) Gold in the IMF:http://www.imf.org/external/np/exr/facts/gold.htm
3) A press release from May, "IMF Board of Governors Approves Key Element of
IMF's New Income Model":http://www.imf.org/external/np/sec/pr/2008/pr08101.htm
Given its correspondence with the IMF's press office back in April (http://www.gata.org/node/6242
remains skeptical that the IMF has any gold at all, skeptical that the IMF's
gold is much more than a tenuous claim on the gold reserves of some of its
members. But at least as of today the IMF denies having sold or lent gold
