Gold Production Cost How High is too High?

OK, so what are the gold production costs and how can we use them in investing? The all-in sustaining costs were about $950 in 2017. It means that the price of gold was higher than the costs, making gold mining profitable. And the obvious investment implication is to invest in gold mining companies that do well in keeping all-in sustaining costs low.
