Except that you can not

Except that you can not "produce" gold. Stars don't "produce" gold within it's normal life span with fusion, only the energies associated with supernova are enough to produce gold. Which can be as high as the output of the star's entire lifespan. So I think we are stuck with the gold we have on Earth as it sits now. Sorry I know you meant to mine gold but I couldn't resist an opportunity to explain why gold and silver for that matter are and will always be valuable. There is a fixed amount so my advice to anyone thinking of buying precious metals "Get while the gettin's good"
