Note: Estimates as at 15 January 2010

It is interesting to note that the combined Market Value of these 17 companies is relatively little higher than the value of Barrick – the world’s largest gold producer. The aggregate annual gold (or Equivalent) production of these 17 companies is significantly less than that of Barrick (or of Newmont, the World's second largest producer).

To avoid the exclusion of valuable companies that do not meet the production size criteria to rank as “Major” companies or “Intermediate” companies, GoldVal.com will tend to favour the use of the terms : Senior (above $2000m), Mid-Cap ($500m to $2000m), and Junior ($100m to $500m) Gold Companies ranked by Market Capitalisation.

Mid-Cap gold companies are defined by GoldVal as those gold companies having a Market Capitalisation of between  US$500m and US$2000m. Of the companies covered by GoldVal.com, the following are regarded as Mid-Cap Companies:
