Mercury Use in Small Scale Gold Mining

Mercury Use in Small Scale Gold Mining

What Can Mining Communities Do? Cost-effective alternatives exist to reduce or eliminate mercury use in ASGM. • Use methods, such as panning or magnet sluice boxes, to obtain a preliminary concentration of gold within the ore, rather than using whole-ore amalgamation. This requires less mercury and creates less waste mercury.
