China surpassed Ghana and South Africa to become the biggest gold exporter in 2020. According to data from the Ghana Chamber of Mines.
The Asian country was able to export 368 metric tons of gold in the provided year, according to the data. Ghana, on the other hand, was only able to ship 114 metric tons, while South Africa came in second with 91 metric tons.
Ghana was Africa’s biggest gold exporter on a continental scale. This is despite the fact that Ghana’s overall gold production fell somewhat from 2019 to 2020.
