That "refining unit" will have a secret back door leading directly to the CCP. They'll take their cut long before any "official" production figures are recorded.

The shinwa will pollute the hell out of that place with Chinese laborers, take everything and leave the Ugandans a disaster. But, they signed up for belt and roads. The commies own them

The latest figure for all the mined gold in human possession is 171,300 tonnes. That would constitute a significant increase, but, of course, mining and refining gold is hugely expensive and time consuming.

That’s 20 Trillion dollars of gold at todays price. That much dumped into the market would crash the gold price.

By the time the Chinese get through with Uganda the skinnies will be begging for British imperialism, US “peacekeepers” or Russian mercenaries for humanitarian assistance…

Hard rock quartz deposits, or gravel? Google "Malakoff Diggins" in California to see what hydraulic mining can do to a landscape.

I wonder whether the news affected the spot market price.
