Gold producing countries worldwide

Most of the gold still comes from China. Otherwise a lot has happened in the ranking of the gold countries.

A good 3,464 tons of gold were produced worldwide in 2019. It has to be dug deeper and deeper because the gold, which is easy to mine, has probably already been discovered. South Africa used to be the largest gold producing country, but production there has been declining since 1970. In China, 383 tons of gold were extracted from the ground last year. Incidentally, the ranking comes from the World Gold Council.

In second place is Russia, which has ousted Australia. One country, namely Indonesia, has dropped out of the top 10 list entirely. Brazil moved in for this and came in 10th. Last year, a good 200 tons of gold (fourth place) came from the USA, 78 percent came from Nevada. This is the first time after five years of growth in the USA a decrease in production volume has been recorded.

In Canada (fifth place), gold production decreased slightly in 2019. At the runner-up, Peru, the production of the precious metal decreased for the fourth time in a row. After Ghana and South Africa follows Mexico, known as an attractive silver country for mining companies. Numerous promising companies such as Aztec Minerals or Vizsla Resources have settled here.

Vizsla Resources – – looks for gold and silver in Mexico. The company’s Panuco mine will soon go into production. Up to more than 7 grams of gold and over 1,200 grams of silver per ton of rock have already been identified.

Aztec Minerals – – Focuses on properties in North, Central and South America. The flagship project is the Cervantes gold-copper project in Sonoro, Mexico. The Tombstone Project in Arizona hosts epithermal gold-silver and silver-lead-zinc mineralization.
