Australia was the world's 2nd biggest gold producer in 2011. The country produced 270 tonnes of gold in 2011, a 3.45 percent increase compared to 2010. Its gold resources are distributed across the continent, but are principally concentrated in Western Australia, South Australia and New South Wales. Western Australia contributes about two-thirds of the country's total gold production. The most important gold deposits include Western Australia's Super Pit at Kalgoorlie, Telfer in the Pilbara region, the St Ives, Agnew, Boddington and Sunrise Dam operations in Yilgarn Craton, as well as the Cadia-Ridgeway operation in New South Wales and the Tanami operations in the Northern Territory, according to Geoscience Australia. The Super Pit outputs up to 24 tonnes (850,000 ounces) of gold every year.
