Gold production in South Africa soared 24.9 percent year-on-year in December 2019, following a downwardly revised 4.5 percent jump in the previous month and supporting overall growth in mining. It was the sharpest increase in gold output since January 2016, as companies were encouraged to raise their production following the recent rise in gold prices to near seven-year highs. In addition, the number reflects a recovery from the December 2018 sharp decline, which was affected by a strike by members of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union. On a seasonally adjusted monthly basis, gold output dropped 0.4 percent.
