How much gold is there in the world?

I have learned two things with the BBC’s article How much gold is there in the world?

  1. No one knows how much gold is current available in the world. The estimates range from 155,244 tonnes to 2.5 million tonnes of gold.
  2. Up to now, gold has always been recycled. But because of its use in the technology industry, gold is being “consumed” for the first time.
