Why are the gold mines not doing extraordinarily well?

Over the last 2 years, when gold climbs, these stocks climb slowly. When the market drops, they drop fast. When gold drops, the go down slowly.

I would think that the gold mine stocks would be the one single place that followed the true shortage of gold.

The other possibility is that they too are being manipulated and that when gold breaks loose, they will skyrocket to make up for lost time. This would be good because it means I've been piling up my 'buys' while the stock is low and still have a top to sell at. (company limited and matched retirement with restrictions - ugh)
