Abstract : The United States production of gold is compared to the production in other free world countries. Developments which may contribute to an increase in domestic production in the near future are cited. Domestic consumption is reviewed by application. Totals for consumption in 1967 and 1968 are in good agreement with those compiled by the Office of Domestic Gold and Silver Operations of the U.S. Treasury Department. Growth patterns have been examined and estimates made on consumption as of 1973. (Author)
