Earnings reports started coming in last week. It was a mixed bag, with some companies showing the negative impacts of the coronavirus-induced government shutdowns, but other companies coming in more upbeat.

After flat-lining over the last several years, gold mine output fell by 1% in 2019. This is further evidence that we could be heading into a long-term and perhaps irreversible decline in gold mine production.
According to the World Gold Council, total gold mine output in 2019 came in at 3,463.7 tons.
