MOSCOW, Mar 6 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs gold production rose about 6.8% on the year to 317.660 tonnes in 2017, Sergei Kashuba, chairman of the Union of Gold Producers of Russia, said on Tuesday in a conference.

Gold producers raised their output by 6.4% on the year to 254.216 tonnes in 2017, while by-product gold production gained 11.6% to 16.459 tonnes, gold scrap production went up 5.6% to 36.98 tonnes, and gold concentrate production rose 13.4% to 10.005 tonnes.

The union expects Russian gold producers to raise combined gold production by 3.2% on the year to 328 tonnes in 2018, with the average annual price for gold amounting to about U.S. $1,200Ц1,400 per ounce, he said.

УWe produced a record amount of gold in post-Soviet Russia in 2017 of 280.68 tonnes. This year production and by-product output of gold in Russia will grow to 285 tonnes, 8 more tonnes will be produced in concentrates, and about 35 tonnes more will be produced after processing of scrap and wastes,Ф he said.
