Visual Capitalist Launches The Money Project

Introducing: The Money Project

We are proud to announce the launch of The Money Project, an exploration of the meaning of money itself.

The aim of The Money Project is to understand the evolving nature of money, and to try to answer the difficult questions about the role that money plays in finance, investments, and accumulating wealth. We will do this through the use of rich visuals, such as infographics, data visualizations, motion graphic videos, and interactive content.

Over the next year, we will publish new additions to The Money Project every 1-2 weeks. We hope that the end result is a rich and intuitive library of resources for the average person to understand the nature of money, and how it affects our wealth and investments.

This week, we start by publishing two foundational infographics: What is Money and The Properties of Money.

These infographics highlight some of the basics of money, as well as some of the common questions we will continue to explore as the project continues.

Click on the two infographics below to access The Money Project microsite, and keep your eye open for new content by subscribing to Visual Capitalist.

Visualizing the New Era of Gold Mining

Between 2011 and 2020, the number of major gold discoveries fell by 70% relative to 2001-2010. 

The lack of discoveries, alongside stagnating gold production, has cast a shadow of doubt on the future of gold supply. 

This infographic sponsored by NOVAGOLD highlights the need for new gold mining projects with a focus on the company’s Donlin Gold project in Alaska.

The Current State of Gold Production

Between 2010 and 2019, gold production increased steadily, though this growth has stagnated over the past few years.

YearGold Production, tonnesYoY % Change
20102,560-
20112,6603.9%

20132,8004.1%

20163,1100.3%
20173,2303.9%

20193,3000.0%
20203,030-8.2%
20213,0902.0%
20223,1000.3%

 Along with a small decrease in gold production in 2020, there were no new major gold discoveries in 2021.

The fall in production and long-term lack of gold discoveries point towards a possible imbalance in gold supply and demand. This calls for the introduction of new gold development projects that can fill the supply-demand gap in the future. 

Sustaining Supply: Gold for the Future

Jurisdictions play an important role when looking for projects that could sustain gold production well into the future.

From political stability to trustworthy legal systems, the characteristics of a jurisdiction can make or break mining projects. Amid ongoing market uncertainty, political turmoil, and resource nationalism, projects in safe jurisdictions offer a better investment opportunity for investors and mining companies. 

Today, 10 of the top 15 mining jurisdictions for investment are located in North America, according to the Fraser Institute report published in 2023. 

A Golden Opportunity

Located in Alaska, one of the world’s safest mining jurisdictions, NOVAGOLD’s 50% owned Donlin Gold project has the highest average grade of gold among major development projects in the Americas. For every tonne of ore, Donlin Gold offers 2.24 grams of gold, which is more than twice the global average grade of 1.04g/t. 

Additionally, Donlin Gold is the second-largest gold-focused development project in the Americas, with over 39 million ounces of gold in M&I resources inclusive of reserves.
