Key highlights

  • At present, the gold industry contributes to the economic growth of countries, as investments in gold mining are driving increase in production, with upcoming projects planned from 2014 to 2020. 
  • There are currently several gold projects which are expected to go operational, over the forecast period until 2020 and according to the US Geological Survey (USGS), global gold production is expected to increase to 3,100t by 2015 and 3,300t by 2017. 
  • Gold mine production is expected to increase overall, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.5% until 2020, following a growing demand for gold, especially in the jewelry sector in Asia. 
  • The average grade of gold ore mined has declined over the years. Gold grade from producing mines range from a high of 32.8g/t to a low of 0.1g/t.
