Gold Reserves and GDP: China is Playing Liar's Poker
Published Jul 31, 2015 on Goldbroker

Last week, when the Chinese central bank announced it was holding 1,658 tonnes of gold, the entire financial media came up with huge headlines showing stupefaction about such an important increase since 2009, the last time there was an official update (1,054 tonnes).

Miners Are Running Out of Gold
Published Jul 31, 2015 on Business Insider

Most of the world's gold is out and has been turned into jewelry. A chart from Macquarie shows we've mined about three-quarters of the planet's gold (that we know about), with only about 55,000 tonnes left to dig out. It will be all gone in 22 years if we keep up a nearly 2,500-tonne-a-year extraction rate and don't find any more.
