Please note the recent comments by GFMS which contradict CPM's statements regarding GFMS's bullion calculations:

"Our survey of stocks in European dealers is, and has always been, conducted on the basis of the quantity of SILVER BULLION PHYSICALLY CONTAINED IN THE VAULTS operated by participants in the survey," said Philip Klapwijk, Chairman of GFMS."
