A Review of the Scope of Artisanal and Small‐Scale

2021-1-15  The idea that artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) is actually not small is the theme of a recent commentary in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine (Burki, 2019). It cites commonly reported global estimates of 40 million people in 80 countries (IISD, 2017 ), as compared to the approximately 7 million people in “industrial mining.”

The Mercury-Gold Relationship: Mercury Use in

There are several ways that mercury is utilized by artisanal small-scale miners (ASGM). It may be mixed with concentrated ore through panning or added to sluices, ball mills or trommels in a process known as whole-ore amalgamation. The resulting amalgam of mercury/gold is called a prill, and it is roasted with a torch or over an open fire.

Mercury pollution from the artisanal mining in Yani

Artisanal gold mining is the main economic activity in the Yani district, Northern Bolivia. In this area abundant orogenic gold deposits constituted by quartz veins hosted in paleozoic turbiditic series that contain either free gold or associated with pyrite. Gold is recovered in processing plants by gravimetric methods using shaking tables in several communities of this district.
