I had the pleasure of joining Rob Tyson for an episode of 'Dig Deep - The Mining Podcast', released today. Listen below as we chat about our latest Gold Demand Trends report.

Some of the topics we discuss include:

  • Investors have been pouring their capital into gold as a way of ensuring their investment. Consumers demand for gold has declined, but is steadily rising once more.
  • India has added a further 19 tonnes to their gold reserves, and have been a regular purchaser. Kazakhstan has added eight tonnes, and Uzbekistan has added 23 tonnes.
  • In March, the Central Bank of Hungary bought 63 tonnes of gold, tripling its gold reserves. It was the 4th largest purchase by any bank since 2009.
