ABSTRACT: Artisanal Small-Scale Gold Mining (ASGM) obviously contributes to serious environmental and health issue for miners, nearby populations, and larger community when the use of mercury (Hg) occurs. Mercury amalgamation is used as a gold recovery technique by 10-12 million ASGM miners around the world and a predicted around 1000 tonnes of ...

2003-3-1  Unskilled artisanal gold miners prefer amalgamation, as it is simple, cheap, quick and effective (mercury can extract more than 90% of gold from concentrates). Because the level of environmental pollution and related human health impacts strongly depend on the amalgamation method employed, “cleaner” measures should be promoted.
