    Great work covering this as usual. Another nation possibly worth following for monthly gold additions is Indonesia. From the IMF official data located here:

    http://data.imf.org/?sk=2DFB3380-3603-4D2C-90BE-A04D8BBCE237&sId=1452013100577

    It appears Indonesia, after holding 78.1 tonnes of gold steadily for multiple years has started to add new equal amounts in May (1.244 tonnes), and July (1.244 tonnes) with a pause in June. They are at 80.558 tonnes now. Not a large change, but this is a nation of 263,510,000 people.

    The Kyrgyz Republic, which hosts Centerra Gold’s large Kumtor Mine, is also very slowly adding gold over the last few years.

    They have 5.2876 tonnes as of July 2017, up from 3.9 in January 2015. Hardly significant but it is a very small country.

      Thanks
      I have the data for Kyrgyz and thought about doing monthly updates but have thought it too insignificant. I may do a year end up date with Krygyz, Turkey (which has added back most of the gold in 2017 that they sold in 2016) and Indonesia (thanks- missed that they had any change)
