Gold mining is a truly global industry that employs millions of people and contributes significantly to many economies. For instance, gold mining makes up 22% of Mali’s GDP and 14% of Peru’s government revenue. The oldest gold mine ever discovered, located near Georgia’s capital of Tblisi, is estimated to be approximately 4,000 years old. The deepest gold mine in the world, Mponeng in South Africa, is as deep as 10 Empire State Buildings.
