Although other countrys have mined more gold their gold was sold and not kept ...

(IF STATE MEANS COUNTRY )

The United States holds the largest gold reserve in the world. With 8,133.5 tonnes, the US gold holdings are worth approximately $269.67 billion. This massive gold reserve represents about .9436 an ounce for ever person living in the country. The majority of the American gold is reported to be held in the world famous United States Bullion Depository in Fort Knox, Kentucky, although there is some controversy that suggests otherwise. The remainder of the US reserves are held at the Philadelphia Mint, the Denver Mint, the West Point Bullion Depository and the San Francisco Assay Office.

(If IN STATE YOU MEAN US State)

Domestic output continued to be dominated by Nevada, where combined production accounted for more than 80% of the U.S. total. Between July 2002 and August 2003,The Carlin Trend in Nevada has been responsible for most of the USA's gold production and is responsible for forming a stable mining platform for several global major gold producers such as Newmont, Placer Dome and Barrick. Gold mineralisation in the Carlin Trend is characterised by a large low grade sedimentary carbonate hosted gold resource.
