Geology of gold course 2020

Neil Phillips is in the process of updating the well received geology of gold course for 2020, and is seeking information on Chinese gold production.

  • is anyone able to help with annual production data broken down by province and, potentially, by mine? At present, the course uses a national gold production estimate of 400 to 450 tonnes per annum.
  • is anyone able to help with resource and reserve estimates for individual gold deposits in China that are supported by good geology and considered to be reliable? Gold Reserves were reported at 12,100 tonnes in 2016 but it is difficult to know whether these are “Proven” reserves, as would be reported in countries adhering to a CRIRSCO reporting code.

Anyone able to help, or direct Neil to a reliable source of information should contact him by email.
