It's as if the two Fixing Companies want to vanish without a trace from the internet.

...

London Gold Market Fixing Limited's representative confirmed to me recently that all the historical Gold Fixing price data from www.goldfixing.com is already on the LBMA site. But without the volume and participant data, this claim is not entirely accurate. Adding in the volume (in bars) and the participant totals would make the data more complete.

The Chinese grants are higher than the total amount of loans granted by the Ex-Im Bank from the United States, the Inter-American Bank of Development (IABD) and the World Bank. This situation contributes to Washington's weakening financial hegemony in the region 

...

More than six years after the outbreak of the financial crisis of 2008 and facing extreme volatility of financial markets as a consequence of increased system vulnerability, the Chinese ended up being the favourite bankers of emergent countries as they offer loans with fewer conditions and at lower interest rates compared to American and European banks. In accordance with estimations made by Fred Hochberg, president of the Ex-Im Bank from the United States, the Chinese state banks have invested approximately 650 billion dollars all over the world during the last two years.

iehi-feed-56296 Sat, 14 Mar 2015 02:15:46 GMT The stunning collapse of gold production in South Africa http://implode-explode.com/viewnews/2015-03-13_ThestunningcollapseofgoldproductioninSouthAfrica.html Statistics South Africa newly released data says gold production during the last three months was down 5.9%. From Nov 2014 to Jan 2015 the seasonally adjusted base was 74.4 compared to 79.1 that was produced from Aug 2014 to Oct 2014.

The drop is not a blip but part of a larger trend that goes back several decades, writes an analyst for the statistics agency... The analyst warns that depletion rates says gold resources will be exhausted in just 33 years and if the estimates hold true the country will take "on a much reduced role on the global gold mining stage."
