Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining Business Plan 2013

artisanal and small-scale gold mining due to its ease of use, low cost, and abundant supply. Whole ore amalgamation dramatically increases the potential for the mercury that is used to be released to the environment. In some cases, this excess mercury approaches 90% of the total in use. Alternative techniques include many options for concentrating

Due to the low specific heat value of whole ore, it is generally necessary to add fuel to the reactor. A two-stage roasting process combines partial roasting in the first stage with dead roasting in the second stage.

Primary Metal Production

Molten metals tend to dissolve impurities from the ore. For example, many ores that contain native copper have arsenic compounds associated with them. When the ore is melted, the molten copper dissolves the arsenic. As a result, the metal from the furnace can be less pure than the individual metal grains that were originally in the ground.
