The Board of Trustees of The Gabelli Global Gold, Natural Resources & Income Trust (Amex - GGN)
declared an additional distribution of $0.18 per share payable on January 10, 2006 to shareholders
of record on December 30, 2005.
This additional $0.18 per share payment will enable the Trust to distribute sufficient investment
company taxable income for 2005 to avoid the imposition of Federal income and excise tax on
undistributed investment company taxable income.
The Trust intends to make regular monthly cash distributions of all or a portion of its investment
company taxable income (which includes ordinary income and realized short-term capital gains) to
common shareholders. The Trust also intends to make annual distributions of its net realized
long-term capital gains. Various factors will affect the level of the Trust's income, such as
its asset mix, and use of covered call strategies. To permit the Trust to maintain more stable
monthly distributions, the Trust may from time to time distribute more or less than the entire
amount of income earned in a particular period. Because the Trust's distribution policy is
subject to modification by the Board of Trustees at any time and the Trust's income will fluctuate,
there can be no assurance that the Trust will pay distributions at a particular rate. Each quarter,
the Board of Trustees will review the amount of any potential distribution and the income, capital
gain or paid-in capital available.
Based on earnings to date, the distribution would include approximately 8% from net investment
income and 92% from capital gains. The final determination of the source of all distributions
in 2005 will be made after year-end. All shareholders with taxable accounts will receive written
notification regarding the components and tax treatment for all 2005 distributions in early 2006
via Form 1099-DIV.
