Abstract Information :

Worldwide, artisanal gold miners have been releasing over 2000 tonnes/a of mercury to the environment. Gravity concentration can reduce the Hg lost, but it does not eliminate its use. This research studied unconventional Hg-free processes for gold leaching from concentrates using a high-grade Colombian artisanal gold ore as a proxy for a gravity concentrate. The whole ore amalgamation of this ore extracted
