How “Small” Is Small-Scale Gold Mining?

Small-scale gold minors in Suriname, Guyana, French Guiana and Brazil are men, women and children, who are ether locals or migrant from the neighboring countries. Small-scale mining accounts for 10-15% of the worlds gold supply. Small-scale gold mining isn’t really that small in reality. Workers employ a variety of methods and mining

Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining Without Mercury

2021-9-2  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 mercury exposure and health risks.
