According to the World Gold Council (WGC), gold mining in the world in 2018 set a new record for all the time observations. Although China has recorded a decline in this indicator.
According to available data, in the past in 2018 gold production in the world amounted to 3,346.9 tons. WGC says that this is the largest annual production volume for all observation time and the tenth consecutive year when precious metal mining continues to grow. But I must say that the growth was only 1% compared with 2017.
