mercury for gold processing

Jan 01, 2016 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 . It is estimated that 12–15% of the world's gold is produced in this manner

    Jan 04, 2020 The principle of gold extraction by using mercury (amalgamation method) is mainly that after the mercury is added to the slurry, the surface of the gold particles is wetted by mercury, and then the mercury diffuses into the interior of the gold particles, causing a chemical reaction. Au+2Hg=AuHg2
