On Earth we expect to exhaust mines, find new mines by exploration or by improving our mining technology, run as fast as we can to stay in one place and hope we don't stumble.

On Cidri none of that is happening: societies have been around a while, technology isn't really improving. So we should be running out of valuable and easily accessed ores. Unless there are Mnoren machines still making more?
One of the byproducts of Alchemy's Philospher Stone is turning base metals into gold. So there would be a low quantity of gold being 'created' all the time.
