In April and May, Russian companies sold abroad 65.4 tons of gold for $3.55 billion while energy corporation Gazprom, holding a monopoly for delivery of natural gas to foreign countries, earned $2.4 billion over the same period.
The Russian Central Bank marked that Gazprom gas sales profits dropped to the lowest quarterly figures since 2002.
Russia has been mining gold since the 19th century, having its peak from the early 1970s to 1987 when it faced a sharp and longtime drop.
