Rising costs and the drop in gold prices in first quarter have already put some gold miners in the uncomfortable position of having to consider hedging production. When prices dipped to the $1,320s area, it started to come close the marginal cost of production plus sustaining capital expenditures, called all-in costs. Estimates of those costs range between $1,200 and $1,300. So on average, how much did it cost in total to dig up an ounce of gold? The answer is it depends on companies mining in different region of the world. Mining in Canada is much more cost efficient than mining in South America.
