309,000 ounces of gold gave Barrick the number one spot in the second quarter, even though the yield was about 19 percent lower than in the same period of the previous year. Close on its heels was Freeport-McMoRan's Grasberg mine in Indonesia. There "only" 6,000 ounces less gold were extracted from the ground. Looking at the second quarter of 2020, this still represents a 60 percent increase. The reason is the ramp-up of underground production. For 2021 as a whole, Freeport-McMoRan is forecasting production of 1.3 million ounces of gold and 1.3 billion pounds of copper, roughly double that of 2020.
In third place is Polyus' Olimpiada gold mine in Russia (270,000 ounces of gold). It is followed by Barrick Gold and AngloGold Ashanti's Kibali mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Barrick's Pueblo Viejo mine in the Dominican Republic. The sixth largest gold producer (in the second quarter of 2021) was Newcrest's Cadia mine in Australia and the number seven producer is also in Australia, Newmont's Boddington mine. In Canada, the largest gold mine there and also the eighth largest gold mine in the world, the Malartic mine ensured production of 184,000 ounces of gold. This is a pleasing increase for the company of around 62 percent compared to the same period last year.
However, there are still a number of promising gold companies in Canada, because size alone is not the decisive factor.
Here, for example, would be Maple Gold Mines - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28PbZGxE7r8 -. In Quebec, Maple Gold Mines is working together with Agnico Eagle on the Joutel and Douay gold projects.
Also in Canada, in British Columbia, is Tudor Gold's - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHazC4ybcxQ&t=3s- Treaty Creek project, which is located in the famous Golden Triangle and covers almost 18,000 hectares.
