INFOGRAPHIC: Gold production costs around the globe

Visual Capitalist has analysed cash costs per ounce for the world’s top 50 producing gold mines in its latest infographic.
With immense negative pressure on the gold price, producers – now more than ever – need to get the job done cheaply.
This week has brought fresh predictions that gold will continue its current phase of decline before eventually hitting bottom.
Factors that have plagued metals miners for years – including ever-rising taxes and wages, resource nationalism, stringent environmental and safety regulations, political and community activism – show few signs of abating, and continue to drive total production costs to new heights.
For the producers, finding properties with potential for low cost production is the name of the game.
