Gold Reports

Gold was among the very first metals to be mined because it commonly occurs in its native form.

Geographical factors include the availability of gold mines in a geographical area, whereas political factors like wars and international tensions have a drastic effect on the other hand economical factors like demand and supply also play a major role in determining the rate of gold.
