World Gold Council is funded by the leading gold mining companies with the aim of stimulating the demand for gold by consumers, investors and industry. Our Industrial Sector seeks to develop new technical uses for gold. Initiatives include the online resource UtiliseGold,the e-journal Gold Bulletin and international conferences including GOLD 2009 www.gold2009.org. Through our GROW Programme we provide support for research that has the potential to lead to new applications for gold. Our extensive knowledge of gold means that if you would like assistance in using this metal at the nanoscale, we can offer relevant advice and contacts.
