Top Gold State in America

Many people, even Americans, may be surprised by which state is the top gold producer in the country, as it's usually known for its glitzy entertainment and gambling, and of course that state is Nevada.

Not only is Nevada the top gold producing state in the U.S., it's the top gold producer by a huge margin, accounting for 82 percent of all gold produced in the country.

And even with the huge deposits found and reported on in other countries, Nevada would still rank as the fourth-largest producer of gold in the world if it was a nation of its own.

The largest trading partner of Nevada in 2009 was Switzerland, which they exported $2.8 billion in goods to, most of that being gold.
