According to Chinese state news agency, Xinhua, geologists have found a significant gold deposit in the Eastern province of Xinjiang.

Chinese geologists believe the site near the Kyrgyzstan border will yield 127 tonnes gold, if correct the site would be worth £3.8bn. Miners have been exploring the Xinjiang district for the last 20 years have discovered over 21 gold belts.

The gold mining industry has slashed exploration costs by 29% since the start of the economic crisis so this latest find is a rare success.

China has been the world’s largest gold miner since 2007 and is expected to mine a total 541 tonnes in 2014.
