Chinese miner holds gold-bearing ore
The production of gold in China fell to 31.059 tonnes in July according to the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
Gold production in China was 2.7% lower than June’s record production of 31.897 tonnes of gold, but was still 17.8% higher than production in July 2009 and the third highest month total ever.
Output of gold from China during the half of 2010 totaled 159.240 tonnes, about 10% higher than the same period of last year. Here are China’s gold production figures for the first half of 2010 and July:
China has been able to increase the output of gold each year since 2004, producing a total of 313.980 tonnes last year. But skyrocketing Chinese investment demand is quickly outstripping supply.
