MOSCOW, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Gold production in Russia increased 12.6% year-on-year in 2013 to reach 254.24 tons, chairman of Russia’s gold producers’ union Sergey Kashuba told Itar-Tass, nothing this was a preliminary figure.
Russia ranked third after China and Australia with 437 tons and 259 tons produced respectively, he added.
