The gold market’s rally in 2018 was buoyed by the prospect of an international supply glut.
And yet, with the prospect now that the world has been given a supply surplus for the first time in at least a century, the outlook for gold mining is looking even more grim.
And there is little sign that the current price is going to ease anytime soon.
Gold mining has long been seen as a relatively safe and lucrative industry.
Mining gold and silver in large amounts, with a lot of infrastructure and a lot to lose, has long attracted a high degree of investment capital, which in turn has made it attractive for the mining industry.
But with a massive gold and copper mine in northern Alberta scheduled to close and a glut of domestic mines being built, mining has begun to be seen as less of a safe investment and more of a risk than before.
That has created a market that is currently worth roughly half of what it was just five years ago, and has prompted gold and iron miners to seek alternative investment options.
In other words, gold mining has been in a bubble, and the price is on the rise.
It has been a relatively easy-to-understand phenomenon to explain for many years, but with a growing number of gold miners getting involved in a market where mining is a risky, risky, and risky proposition, it is becoming increasingly difficult to avoid the inevitable.
What does gold mining look like right now?
There are currently more than 150 active gold mines worldwide, but only a handful of them are known to have more than 1,000 employees.
They include: In the United States, there are more than 6,500 active gold miners, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, which is a bit higher than the total number of active mines in Canada.
Most of those are in the Midwest, with about two-thirds in Wyoming and Montana.
Canada has about one-third of the active gold mining capacity, according a 2014 report by the U,S.
Energy Information Administration.
While some of the gold mines have been closed in recent years, many of the remaining mines are still operating and producing gold.
A few mines have recently been closed due to problems related to earthquakes, including a mine in Montana and a mine that was recently shut down because of an explosion in Montana.
Many of the other mines are being closed due either to a shortage of ore or mining problems.
There are also several gold mines that are closed or have recently closed due various reasons.
The U.K. alone has more than 300 active mines.
Other countries include the United Arab Emirates, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Turkey, Indonesia, South Africa, France, and Russia.
A handful of mines in Europe have reported a decline in business, while others have been shut down due to safety concerns.
The United States has only a small number of mines with a significant amount of activity, and some of those mines are in very remote areas where safety concerns remain.
The mining industry is not the only one struggling to get back to profitability, however.
Gold prices are volatile and often move wildly from day to day.
As of January 2019, the spot price of gold was $5,547 an ounce.
At that price, there is currently a global glut of gold.
The last time gold prices rose more than 10 percent was in April 2018.
Since then, the price of the precious metal has fallen more than 25 percent.
Gold miners have also been losing money.
Gold’s price has fallen as much as 42 percent in the last year alone.
The average price of a metric ton of gold dropped from $2,846.40 in December 2017 to $1,721.85 in September 2018.
With prices falling and miners losing money, it will be interesting to see how long the price stays this low.
As the glut of precious metals has increased in recent months, mining companies have been forced to raise prices or find other ways to survive.
With the price in the United Kingdom and Australia up more than 30 percent and more than 35 percent respectively, mining operations have been shutting down.
A lot of those shut downs have been due to earthquakes in the U-K.
and the U.-S.
However, as the world economy has recovered, there has been an uptick in demand for gold, and gold mining companies are seeing the price rise again.
In the U., for example, miners are now looking to buy gold in large quantities from foreign companies.
That could mean buying gold in China, Russia, Australia, and even South Africa.
A big part of that increased demand is from emerging economies, where gold is a popular commodity.
Gold is the world’s second-most popular commodity, behind oil, according the Global Gold Council.
And while the global economy is still recovering from the Great Recession, gold is also seeing an increase in demand, which could put more pressure on the global price.
What is the current supply glut?
The world is set to receive a large amount of
