Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
The audit of its gold reserves vaulted at the Bank of England that last week was reported being planned by the Austrian central bank —
— has been conducted and was part of a routine series of audits by the bank and its results will not be made public, a bank spokesman said today.
The bank spokesman, Christian Gutlederer, commented in response to an inquiry by the German freelance financial journalist Lars Schall.
In addition to inquiring about the gold audit, Schall asked if the Austrian central bank would be publishing a list of the serial numbers of its gold bars, but the bank spokesman did not acknowledge the question.
