Small mining gold extraction method

Jun 01, 2012 An obvious drawback of this method is the toxicity of mercury.2,3 The health risk of mercury is well known today in many parts of the world, but in remote small-scale mining (SSM) communities that knowledge is still scarce.4 Gold extraction by amalgamation releases large amounts of mercury into the environment as metal mercury, which is later transformed to metholated mercury, a

    Nov 16, 2020 Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining Without Mercury. In many countries, elemental mercury is used in artisanal and small-scale gold mining. Mercury is mixed with gold-containing materials, forming a mercury-gold amalgam which is then heated, vaporizing the mercury to obtain the gold. This process can be very dangerous and lead to significant

But, the most efficient method for gold extraction is froth flotation. Along with mechanized mining, froth flotation allowed the best recovery of gold from much lower grade ore than before – making it perhaps the most important

    Mercury-Free Gold Extraction Using Borax for Small-Scale

    Small-scale gold mining is the largest anthropogenic contributor of mercury pollution on planet Earth. The miners grind gold ore together with mercury in order to recover the fine gold grains. The gold amalgam is burned whereby the mercury evaporates and gold is left behind. This processing extracts only a fraction of the gold in the ore and the released mercury causes serious global health
