Jan 18 2017 Gold miners have to smelt their gold in order to remove impurities resulting in pure gold Most large scale gold miners send their ore to smelters with large equipment for the smelting process Small scale miners still can do their own smelting using specialized kilns Many people confuse gold smelting with melting reversal of the adsorption process with most of the gold desorbing from the carbon back into solution This produces a small volume of solution with a high gold concentration The gold is recovered from this solution by electrowinning zinc precipitation or refining technology such as the Mintek Minataur process gold mining operation in Portovelo Ecuador Veiga et al 2009 However economic and technicalconstraints limit the feasibilityof this technology in the majority of artisanal and smallscale gold mining camps Mercury retorts designed to collect mercury emissions during gold processing have the potential to reduce mercury

In this work two hydrometallurgical processes for gold recovery are explored for a smallscale 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 With the passing of the law the MGB was given the authority to administer smallscale mining SMALLSCALE GOLD MINING PROCESS The initial process of gold mining starts with prospecting In prospecting the ore quality vein geologic formation and ore assaying are examined An area with a good ore quality is prepared for tunneling This Manual will provide a detailed illustration of VATLeaching process as carried by small scale miners in Tanzania which is the second gold extraction process used by small scale miners after amalgamation The process has eagerly raged all over the country where there are deposits of gold
