Gold miners in Australia, emboldened by a weakening currency, have been increasing production in the face of a global rout in the precious metal, figures released on Sunday showed. Output by the world's no. 2 producer behind China climbed to 72 tonnes in the third quarter, up 1 percent up on the previous quarter and 2 percent higher than the same period a year ago, according to a survey by sector consultants Surbiton Associates.

The European Union is not an abstract concept in Grimsby, an English port where many blame EU fishing quotas for destroying livelihoods, but views on whether Britain should quit the club are more nuanced than the decaying fish docks suggest.
The dominant theme of commodity markets in recent months, in virtually every article or conversation at events, has been how much lower can prices possibly go. The answer is simple, they will stop falling when the point of maximum pain is reached. With the prices of many commodities at multi-year lows and the broad Bloomberg Commodity Index close to its weakest in more than 16 years, many commodity producers, investors and traders are becoming desperate for any positive signs.
Malaysia should work towards a common palm oil export duty plan with Indonesia to support its refining sector, which risks losing market share following the introduction of more competitive Indonesian levies, a Malaysian industry body said. Refiners in top palm producer Indonesia enjoy an advantage as the country's levy on refined palm product exports is lower than its $50-a-tonne levy on crude palm oil (CPO) shipments. This should help keep more CPO at home, dragging down domestic prices and improving downstream margins.
Export premiums for soyabeans shipped from the US Gulf Coast were mostly steady on Wednesday amid moderate demand from top importer China and adequate supplies in the export pipeline, traders said. Chicago Board of Trade soyabean futures rallied more than 1 percent, which triggered scattered farmer sales across the Midwest and weighed down basis values in the cash market. Spot CIF soyabean barge basis bids fell by a penny on Wednesday afternoon.
Palm oil on the European vegetable oils market rose on Thursday on the back of a strong ringgit and expected lower output in November. Markets were quiet due to the absence of direction from Chicago markets due to the US Thanksgiving Day holiday. "Thanksgiving Day is always quiet with many players absent and hardly any leads to work with," one broker said.
Soyabean spot basis bids fell by 5 cents per bushel at two processing plants in Indiana on Wednesday, pressured by reduced crushing rates as profit margins declined, dealers said. Soyabean bids were steady to firm elsewhere in the US Midwest, with the basis rising by 4 cents at a terminal along the Ohio River in Cincinnati, Ohio.
