The gold price is currently trading at around $2,450 an ounce in Australian dollar terms. However, the nation’s leading gold producers have locked in forward sales of more than three million ounces at prices well below this level. Newcrest Mining stands to incur the biggest loss from gold hedging, having locked in sales of more than 658,000 ounces from the Telfer mine at just $1,875 an ounce over the next three years.
