This new book continues the story of the modern gold sector in Australia. It focuses on the first two decades of the new millennium, as a follow-up to The Great Gold Renaissance, which covered the 1980s and 1990s.
This book describes the second twenty years of Australia’s Modern Gold Boom from 2001 to 2021. It tells why annual gold output is now worth around A$25 billion and why Australia is the world’s second largest gold producer. The book is packed with information. In addition to details of the gold producing companies and their operations, it also includes stories of many of the people involved, as well as covering a wide range of other facets of the industry.
The book is written by someone with hands-on experience - a gold industry expert and former geologist, banker, senior corporate executive and media commentator.
