Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining Without

This process is mostly used in large scale mining operations but has been increasingly adopted in small scale mining because of its high gold recovery rate and low cost. The best practices for chemical leaching are a combination of pre-concentration and mill leaching, as they lead to the least amount of waste, a short processing time for miners, and high gold recoveries. First, concentration is done through gravity techniques.

Mercury Use in Small-Scale Gold Mining

Although large-scale gold mines have adopted other methodologies to reduce their mercury use, sometimes mercury may be generated as a byproduct in those types of mines as well. How Does the Process Work? When the ore is exposed to mercury, mercury will bind to the gold and form an amalgam, making it easier to separate the gold. The amalgam is then heated, and the mercury evaporates,
