SGE Delivery 1979 Tons YTD, 51 Tons In Week 48

Physical withdraws from the Shanghai Gold Exchange vaults were up 8 tons last week, 51 tons from 43 tons a week earlier, up 16.53%. As we heard a few days ago from the biggest refinery in Switzerland they have been working 24 hours a day in three shifts all year in order to supply the Chinese, and this is not slowing down. Chinese demand will reach over 2200 tons in total this year, on top of that it’s estimated the PBOC will have purchased another 500 tons.

    Does the figure of 1978 tons of physical withdrawal from the Shanghai Gold Exchange include the gold mined domestically in China?
