March 19, 2009

We just finished up the latest (April 2009) issue and sent it off to the press for their review.

Subscribers in the United States can expect  delivery between April 1 - April 10. (It's mailed in California, so it takes a few days to reach Midwest and East Coast states.) Print subscribers in Canada and other countries should expect delivery between April 5 - April 14.

The issue will be posted to our website on March 27 for online subscribers.

I'll be catching up on emails and trying to get through the stack of mail on my desk before heading out to Puyallup (Washington) tomorrow morning for the GPAA Gold & Treasure Show this weekend. If you are going to be at the show, please stop by and say hello.

We've been plugging away, getting many of the pages of our old site converted to the new one.

The new site seems to be a hit. For the first 15 days of March we had 22,444 unique visitors. The most popular article was “Rahall Proposes Bill to End All Mining in the U.S.” (This article was linked to by several outside sources and was read 17,576 times.)

In the past week, we've added/updated: Currently, the Search function queries the entire site. We are working on adding the option to query only articles and this function will be available shortly. Keep in mind that there are only four complete issues (Dec08 - Mar09) available so far. We will be adding additional back issues as time permits, starting with Nov08 and working our way back from there.

What will be the spot price of gold per troy ounce at the end of 2009?

That's it for now... I have a few more things to take care of before I head for the airport.
