The value of this quantity of gold more than 6.5 billion dollars, and thus Libya is among the top 25 Gold Reserves worldwide ,although many observers believe that the real amount of gold in Libya is more than this amount declared by several tons.Gaddafi is now using the Gold to pay the salaries of an army of mercenaries being not able to export the Oil which is the most important sources of income in the Libyan state . The Financial Times quoted people familiar with the activity of Libya in the gold market as saying that while the majority of central banks keep their reserves of gold in London or New York or Switzerland, the Libyan gold is already in Libya.Remains the difficulty for Gaddafi to sell the Gold and get cash for it
