After a brief background to US gold production, explains how this has a bearing on data used to estimate resources, and gives a resource profile. Concludes that the quantity of remaining gold resources that can be mined at grades that are now or soon will be economic could be sufficient to supply the US for the next 45yr, but reluctance to invest in new processes may mean a continuation of the 80% gold production deficit. -after Author
