II. Major gold producing countries. (2011-2012)

CHINA Gold mining in the People's Republic of China has recently made that country the world's largest gold producer. For the year 2007, gold output rose 12% from 2006 to 276 tones to become the world's largest for the first time -- overtaking South Africa, which produced 272 tones. For the third consecutive year, China is the world's largest producer of gold. It beat its previous record. Chinese gold production rose from 285 to 300 tons of gold from 2008 to 2009.

AUSTRALIA Australia is the second largest gold producer in the world with 215 tones. Production is down 2.3% compared to 2008. Australia moves from fourth to second as its production declined more slowly than that of South Africa and USA.

SOUTH AFRICA AND UNITES STATES OF AMERICA South Africa has lost its place of No. 1 gold production in 2007. It is now the third largest in the world with the USA. Gold production in South Africa is below that of 2008 (213t) with 210 tones of gold produced. Gold production in South Africa has almost halved since 2001 (402 tones of gold). The decline of gold production in South Africa in 2009, like 2008, can be attributed in part to problems of electricity production. But for 39 years, production of gold in South Africa decreases because of depletion of its best deposits.

The U.S. is third with a production of 215 tonnes of gold, the same output as South Africa. Gold production in the U.S. has declined since the peak (record year) of 1998. The state of Nevada produces 3/4 of gold production in the USA.

RUSSIA: Russia gold mines produced 185 tonnes of gold in 2009, an increase of 5.1% over 2008 and 21% over 2001. The record year of gold production in the Soviet Union is 1989 with 304 tonnes. For Russia, 2009 with 185 tonnes of gold was a record year. The three largest producers of gold produced each year third of Russian gold. Russia guards, such as China, growth potential of its gold production
