NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwire - August 28, 2009) - Hundreds of today's most active individual investors are heading once again to New Orleans, for an annual event that has, now in its 35th year, gathered the world's most celebrated and successful experts to share their advice and top recommendations.

This year's event is no exception, as the 2009 New Orleans Investment Conference features a blockbuster agenda with some of the biggest names in economics, geopolitics and investing.

In addition, the Conference's Exhibit Hall will feature a wide range of companies, all eager to tell their stories to interested investors.

Top-level Sponsors to be found on the show floor include: U.S. Global Investors, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GROW), NovaGold Resources Inc. (NYSE Amex: NG), Underworld Resources (TSX-V: UW), Esperanza Silver Corporation (TSX-V: EPZ), Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (NYSE Amex: HMY), Gandolfo & Associates, Gold Newsletter, Golden Predator Royalty & Development Corp. (TSX-V: GPD), Hunter Dickinson, Inter-Citic Minerals Inc. (TSX: ICI), Keegan Resources Inc. (TSX: KGN) (NYSE Amex: KGN), Linear Gold Corp. (TSX: LRR), Mantra Mining Inc. (TSX-V: MAN), Merk Mutual Funds (NASDAQ: MEAFX) (NASDAQ: MERKX), Natcore Technology, Inc. (TSX-V: NXT), New Pacific Metals Corp. (TSX-V: NUX), Romarco Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: R), Silvercorp Metals Inc. (NYSE Amex: SVM), Ur-Energy (TSX: URE) (NYSE Amex: URG), Wits Gold (TSX: WGR) and Wealth Research Institute.

First organized in 1974 to promote the principles of sound money, the New Orleans Investment Conference has expanded over the years to cover a full range of investment opportunities, including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, tangible assets, currencies, precious metals, oil and gas, real estate, options, futures, greentech and more.

This year's Conference will include a special "Summit on America's Future" -- an elite panel featuring Karl Rove, Charles Krauthammer, Robert Ringer and Rick Santelli. This panel will give you the inside scoop on what's going on in Washington, how the markets will react, and what you must do to prepare for it.

A big highlight will be a special keynote presentation by Congressman Ron Paul, the Republican Presidential candidate whose grass roots campaign galvanized pro-freedom voters across America.

Attendees will also be treated to a debate between Karl Rove, Doug Casey and Howard Dean representing the conservative, libertarian and liberal views, respectively. This debate should be one of the most enlightening events in the Conference's 35-year history.

Additional faculty who will be represented at the 2009 New Orleans Investment Conference include:

Dr. Marc Faber -- An icon in the world of investments, Dr. Faber's typically controversial and contrarian views have earned him the label of "Dr. Doom." But even his harshest critics must sheepishly admit that he's been unerringly correct in his market forecasts over the past three decades.

Peter Schiff -- After dead-on accurate predictions on the U.S. stock market, economy, real estate, the mortgage meltdown, credit crunch, subprime debacle, commodities, gold and the dollar, all of the nation's major financial media are flocking to hear his latest views.

Robert Ringer -- A three-time No. 1 best-selling author and one of the most eloquent proponents of individual liberty and responsibility in recent history, he will reveal what's really going on in Washington, and from where you can expect the next attacks on your freedom to come.

Rick Santelli -- A rising star of the pro-freedom movement, Mr. Santelli will also present his views and predictions at New Orleans 2009. It was Santelli's rant against the government's housing bailout plan on February 19th that sparked national outrage against the federal bailouts and spending binge, and helped ignite the entire "Tea Party" movement.

Charles Krauthammer -- A Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and the man the Financial Times calls "the most influential commentator in America," Mr. Krauthammer defines the term "Renaissance man." A former practicing psychiatrist, and currently a columnist for The Washington Post, his views have influenced American policy for over three decades. His towering intellect and powerful opinions have earned him the respect of both the left and the right.

Dr. Stephen Leeb -- Senior editor of The Complete Investor and one of the most successful and highly respected investment newsletter editors in history, Dr. Leeb will provide attendees with his forecasts for the tumultuous days ahead, but also the specific stocks and strategies needed.

In addition to these speakers, the 2009 New Orleans Investment Conference will feature dozens more of the most respected advisors in every area of economics and investments.

This year's event is being held from October 8-11, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.
