In 2018, China produced 14.1Moz of gold and 123.5Moz of silver. Gold production remained close to 2012 levels, owing to the sluggish demand from domestic end-use sectors. However, the country’s silver production increased by 2.1%, owing to the strong performance of base metals in that year. The majority of precious metals originates from the province of Shandong, Henan, Tibet, Zhejiang, and Hubei.
Chinese silver mine production is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.9% over the forecast period (2019–2023), with this growth supported by several upcoming projects. However, gold production is expected to drop to 13.6Moz.
