World Gold Supply and DRC’s Emerging Role

February 8th, 2010
We have just uploaded a short presentation that covers historical gold supply with an emphasis on African gold production.  We also look at major gold deposits contained in greenstone belts and the potential of the Kilo Moto area in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) as a significant source of gold production in the future.

On slide 6 you will see a chart of gold output from other emerging gold producing countries in Africa including Ghana, Mali, and Tanzania.  It is interesting to note that democratic elections and political reforms (including new mining codes) - milestones which have recently occured in the DRC - were precursors to political stability, foreign investment, and ultimately increased gold production in these countries.
