When the Gold We Have is All the Gold that Humanity Will Ever Get to Play With, What Then?

Chris, I wonder what'll happen in the deindustrial future, when the accessible gold mines are played out and what veins of ore remain are so far beneath the surface and/or so poor in quality that, lacking fossil fuels and the technology that depends on them, it no longer makes any economic sense to mine and smelt them. When the gold we have is all the gold that humanity will ever get to play with, what then? - John Michael Greer

After the era of fossil fuels there will be no more gold to dig, ever
