A global assessment of the economic value created and distributed by World Gold Council members.

Responsibly undertaken, gold mining and related activities can play an important role in achieving sustainable socio‐economic development in all the countries where gold is found. Gold, produced in conformance with high safety, environmental and social standards, provides opportunities in the form of jobs, skills, improved infrastructure and tax revenues. Through such direct and indirect economic contributions, professional gold mining benefits nations, communities and individuals. 

With commentaries from Randall Oliphant, Chairman, World Gold Council and Executive Chairman, New Gold and Nick Holland, Chief Executive Officer, Gold Fields.
