throughout the world. While the vast majority of artisanal and small-scale gold mines in Mozambique use mercury amalgamation in the gold mining process, the privately owned Clean Tech Mine in the Manica Province has eliminated the use of mercury at their mine. Instead, gold is isolated by centrifu-gation and magnetic removal of gangue materials.

How “Small” Is Small-Scale Gold Mining?

Small-scale gold minors in Suriname, Guyana, French Guiana and Brazil are men, women and children, who are ether locals or migrant from the neighboring countries. Small-scale mining accounts for 10-15% of the worlds gold supply. Small-scale gold mining isn’t really that small in reality. Workers employ a variety of methods and mining techniques.

Governance challenges of small-scale gold mining in Ghana

Mar 01, 2021 The artisanal small-scale mining (ASM) sector commonly described as low-tech, labor-intensive mineral extraction and processing, in developing countries, is increasingly associated with the use of heavy earth moving machines and hazardous chemicals for ore extraction, which can have negative implications on agricultural land use and the environment.

The Resiliency of the Philippine Small-Scale Mining

Dec 24, 2020 These conditions make small-scale mining communities more vulnerable to natural disasters. In the Philippines, artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) is practiced in more than 30 provinces across the country, employs around 300,000 to 500,000 miners, and supports the livelihood of another two million people nationwide.

Simulation-Based Analysis of Hydrometallurgical Processes

In this work, two hydrometallurgical processes for gold recovery are explored for a small-scale gold mining case study located at Ponce Enriquez, Azuay, Ecuador. The hydrometallurgical systems consider the use of sodium cyanide and sodium thiosulfate as leaching agents, with and without the incorporation of a subsystem for residual mercury removal.
