Largest gold mining companies by market capitalization Australia 2020

Newcrest Mining Limited led the gold mining companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange as of March, 2020, with a market capitalization of almost 20 billion Australian dollars. Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, Newcrest was one of the leading gold mining companies in the world at that time. Following closely behind in terms of market cap was Australian company Northern Star Resources.

Northern Star Resources

Founded in 2000, Northern Star has established itself as a global-scale Australian gold producer. It operates primarily in Western Australia, however in 2018, the company announced its expansion into Alaska by acquiring the Pogo gold mine. The net profit of the company in fiscal year 2019 was lower than the peak reported in 2017. Nonetheless, Northern Star’s market cap significantly compared to fiscal year 2017, solidifying itself as a leading player in the Australian gold mining industry.

Gold mining down under

The volume of gold produced in Australia was forecasted to grow steadily until 2022, reaching a peak of almost 380 metric tons. While Australian gold mining has traditionally been an important segment of the global metal mining industry, the number of gold mines in the country was forecasted to decrease between 2021 to 2057. As the mines in operation inevitably run out of gold, industry experts have indicated that Australia could lose its place as the second biggest gold-producing nation as early as in 2024.
