Big 10 gold deposits

January 22, 2013

The Virtual Capitalist has published its list of the world’s largest gold deposits. Three of ten are north of 56 and none is in production. They represent 216 M oz. of gold valued at $3.57 trillion.

A few interesting points:


All three of the top ten deposits north of 56 are still undeveloped. Donlin is just starting the permitting process. KSM is similarly advanced. Pebble is controversial and faces a tough road to production—it would be at years away from development.
