Every year thousands of tonnes of mercury are released into the environment where it causes serious and long lasting damage to health and envi-ronment. Small scale miners often use whole ore amal-gamation or repeatedly mill the already proc-essed gold ore in order to increase recovery. Milling the mercury produce mercury flour which cannot coalesce and,Introduction of Mercury-free Gold Extraction Methods to,,The gold ores in the Sorata region from La Suerte and San Mateo are amenable to gold extraction using borax smelting. The gold ores from the two mines are very similar. Two competitions between traditional mercury gold extraction and mercury-free gold extraction methods were held and the mercury-free method gave the highest yield in both cases. The processing time of the two methods wereBorax An Alternative To Mercury For Gold Extraction By,2019-9-20The mineral borax has been suggested to be used as an alternative to mercury in the extraction of gold in Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining ASGM. Mercury is apparently used widely by ASGM in more than 50 countries worldwide.

The final result: A pure gold pellet produced without use of mercury. Advantages of using borax to extract gold . The main advantage is that borax is environ-mentally benign.

About forty,Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining Without Mercury,,21.11.2018· Gold concentrate is combined with a flux, such as borax or other materials of mixtures, in the crucible. The flux acts to decrease the melting temperature and viscosity of non-gold minerals in the concentrate so they are more easily separated from the gold during the cooling process. Small amounts of concentrates, usually around 50 to 100 grams, are used in direct smelting. Concentrate and,Borax Method of Gold Extraction | Gold | Mining,Virtually all of the mercury is released into the environment.1 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,1 ResearchArticle 3 SofieLcke,,mercury demand for use in small-scale gold mining if the present, lavish Hg practices continue. At the same time, gold-bearing placer or alluvial deposits are being exhausted in other areas, forcing many miners to give up mining and others to turn to hard rock mining, where the technique of amalgamation with Hg, generally, is not feasible [6].
