Mining experts have warned that the world's gold supplies could soon be depleted.

Experts across the industry said we will soon hit 'peak gold' - the point at which gold discoveries start to decline as there are no more new resources to discover.

According to scientists, the 'peak gold' point will be reached in 2019 and supplies of the precious metal are set to tail off year-on-year from that point onward.

Ian Telfer, chairman of Goldcorp, told the Financial Post last month: 'If I could give one sentence about the gold mining business… it's that in my life, gold produced from mines has gone up pretty steadily for 40 years.

'Well, either this year it starts to go down, or next year it starts to go down, or it's already going down… We're right at peak gold here.'

At Goldcorp, production has dropped off since 2015 when it produced 3.4 million ounces of gold. It produced 2.8 million in 2016 and 2.5 million last year.

Telfer also warned that the current price of gold reflects the feeling in the market that the supply of gold could soon dry up.

  Facebook uses newspaper ads to warn WhatsApp users about fake news The devastating consequences of fake news are apparent around the world, but in recent times India has felt them most keenly, with the spread of misinformation resulting in the deaths of 12 people in the last two months. This week, Facebook has taken out full-page adverts in a number of Indian newspapers imploring WhatsApp users to think carefully about the messages they receive, and offering 10 tips for spotting fake news. The advert encourages users to "question information that upsets you" and to "think twice before sharing it again.

People responsible for supplying the world with gold are sounding the alarm, saying discoveries of the precious metal are shrinking and there’s no reasonable substitute. Mining companies are no longer finding new deposits of gold to replace their aging mines .

'Are we not looking for it? Are we bad at finding it? Or have we found it all? My answer is we found it all. At US$1,300 (per ounce of) gold, we found it all,' he added.

I don't think there are any more mines out there, or nothing significant. And the exploration records indicate that.'

And Telfer certainly isn't alone, as several other industry experts have piled in to suggest gold may have had its day.

Last month, Rudy Fronk, Chairman and CEO of Seabridge Gold said: 'Peak gold is the new reality in the gold business with reserves now being mined much faster than they are being replaced.'

While Nick Holland, CEO of South Africa's largest gold producer Gold Fields, said: 'We were all talking about how production was going to increase every year. I think those days are probably gone.'

Kevin Dushnisky, President of mining giant Barrick Gold, commented: 'Falling grades and production levels, a lack of new discoveries, and extended project development timelines are bullish for the medium and long-term gold price outlook.'
