The Denver Gold Forum, held Sept 22–25, was an invitation-only event billed as featuring seven-eighths of the world's publicly traded gold and silver companies measured by production. It was preceded by the Precious Metals Summit in Beaver Creek, which focused on smaller, emerging companies, some 90 of them with market caps of at least $20 million. Attendees included analysts, fund managers and institutional investors eager to hear updates on companies they own—or may want to own in the future. The Gold Report Publisher Karen Roche and Associate Publisher Jason Mallin were there and brought back this report.
