Sales of the New #iPhone 6 are off to a strong start. Questions have arisen over the effect this will have on overall gold demand? The World Gold Council’s Krishan Gopaul states that: “While electronic devices are important to gold demand in technological applications, a new smart phone or electronic device, even if it is a best seller, will not have a material impact on global gold demand in tonnage terms.” http://legacy.kitco.com/news/2015-10-01/Are-Apple-s-Record-iPhone-6s-and-6s-Plus-Sales-Bullish-For-Gold.html

Scientists discover 'ground-breaking' magnetic capabilities of gold. Physicists at the University of Bath have found that gold may hold magnetic properties, which could help to make computers faster, smaller and more powerful.

A team of physicists from the University of Bath have magnetised gold in a process that could lead to a new generation of electronics. The scientists investigated what happens when material that carries electrical current without generating any heat, is sandwiched between a layer of a magnetic material and a layer of gold. The results found that the charge carried through to the gold, causing it to turn magnetic.

The World Gold Council is the market development organisation for the gold industry and the global voice of authority for gold.
Introduction

The World Gold Council is the market development organisation for the gold industry. Working within the investment, jewellery and technology sectors, as well as engaging in government affairs, our purpose is to provide industry leadership, whilst stimulating and sustaining demand for gold.

We develop gold-backed solutions, services and markets, based on true market insight. As a result, we create structural shifts in demand for gold across key market sectors.

We provide insights into the international gold markets, helping people to better understand the wealth preservation qualities of gold and its role in meeting the social and environmental needs of society.

Based in the UK, with operations in India, the Far East, Europe and the US, the World Gold Council is an association whose 23 members comprise the world’s leading gold mining companies, representing approximately 60% of global corporate gold production.
