It's hard to believe, but if all the gold ever mined was weighed, it would amount to between 140,000 and 160,000 tons. That would be a cube of approximately 62 feet on a side. A cubic inch of gold weighs 11.06 oz.
No. Based on geological surveys and other estimates, only about 5% of the total gold available has been mined in human history. So 95% would supposedly still be there for the taking.
According to the world gold council a total of 165 000 tonnes of gold have been mined in the whole of human history, up until 2009. This has a volume of 8500m3, this woul form a cube with sides of 20.4 metres.
By knowing the amount of gold that is mined and produced per year and having reasonable estimates for values in the past, it's likely that there have been5.8 billion ounces of gold produced in human history.Video explanation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asodfnJbPR8
