China could overtake Australia as the world's number three gold producer and might even dethrone US to be ranked second in 2007, China Gold Association said in a report, which commented on China's first half gold production performance.
At present, China is the world's fourth largest gold producer after South Africa, US and Australia. In the recent years, the top three countries have been seen a steady fall in gold output.
