Mercury in Gold Processing - ScienceDirect

2016-1-1  Mercury is used to extract gold by forming a gold–mercury amalgam in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM). Almost all of this mercury is lost to the environment when the amalgam is heated to purify the gold, at an estimated 1400 metric tons per year (UNEP, 2015).

Using Mercury in Gold Ore processing - historic methods

2010-6-15  In crushing an ore for amalgamation, the aim should be to crush just fine enough to liberate the gold from its matrix of quartz or other mineral, that these golden grains or flakes may be exposed to and caught by the aid of mercury. Crushing too coarse will result in the gold not being liberated, but still enclosed in the gangue rock so that ...

How Mercury Gold Amalgamation Works

2016-10-28  Mercury is sometimes added direct to the outside plates, and sometimes their condition is regulated by the additions of mercury in the mortar box. The amount added varies with the conditions of crushing and the richness of the ore, but in general from 1 to 2 ounces of mercury are fed in for every ounce of gold contained in the ore.
