It takes many years for such output increases to come through and presently there is no danger of indigestion in terms of supply, indeed in the case of gold, mine production has been falling slowly for some years and shows no signs of recovery despite the more than doubling of the price over the past three years or so.

Serious mine disasters are unfortunately all too common, although this seems to be less of a problem with internationally listed companies.
