Gold mining stocks and ETFs had been lagging bullion prices in recent years. However some analysts are looking for the shares to tighten the performance gap in 2012. Scott Wright of Resource Investor argues that 2011 global gold-mine production finally returned to pre-bull levels. "In fact, with 2011's volume expected to come in at around 88m ounces, we'll see a new all-time production high," Wright argues.

Investing in gold mining stocks is not without risk, however. As pointed out on, higher costs can weigh on margins and cut into profits. "Businesses which have found gold in smaller countries have been forced to build roads, hospitals, schools and other social infrastructure, as well as repair the damage they do," reports.
