Gold Profile

Thu, 10/17/2019 - 13:31

Mexico is among the world’s gold champions. Even when Mexican gold production fell 6.7 percent in 2018 with respect to the previous year, the country advanced from ninth to eighth place in the global ranking of producers. In Latin America, only Peru churned out more than Mexico’s 107.7 tons. The most important national producers were Sonora, Chihuahua and Guerrero. Honorable mention goes to Torex Gold, whose El Limon Guajes mine achieved a remarkable comeback after the illegal blockades it suffered in 2017. The top importer for Mexican gold in 2018 was the US.
