Abstract
This paper addresses the long-term cost and availability of primary gold production from the Republic of South Africa. Forty-four major producing or developing operations were evaluated. The analyses present estimates concerning (1) total refined gold potentially available from demonstrated resources, (2) annual production potential into the next century, (3) long-term weighted average total costs for underground mine production and surface waste reprocessing, (4) the expected annual decrease in gold production , and (5) the ability of other market economy countries to compensate for the anticipated decline in South African gold output. This paper draws upon the data and analyses of a recent Bureau of Mines minerals availability program appraisal that evaluated the worldwide availability of gold and silver from primary precious metal operations and as a byproduct of base metal production.
