Mercury Usage in Gold Mining and Why It Is a Problem

Jan 14, 2019Small scale gold mining operations sometimes use mercury to separate the gold from other materials. First, mercury is mixed with the materials containing gold. A mercury gold amalgam then is formed because gold will dissolve in the mercury while other impurities will not. The mixture of gold and mercury is then heated to a temperature that will

Mercurydependent artisanal and smallscale gold mining (ASGM) is the largest source of mercury pollution on Earth. In this practice, elemental mercury is used to extract gold from ore as an amalgam. The amalgam is typically isolated by hand and then heatedoften with a torch or over a stoveto distill the mercury and isolate the gold.

Mercury amalgamation is a very common form of gold extraction. Artisanal and small scale gold miners combine mercury with gold bearing ore to form a hardened amalgam that contains most of the gold metal from the silt. This amalgam is then heated with blowtorches or over an open flame to evaporate the mercury, leaving gold behind.
