Gold Smelting and Refining - ILO Encyclopaedia

Gold mining is carried out on a small scale by individual prospectors (e.g., in China and Brazil) and on a large scale in underground mines (e.g., in South Africa) and in open pit mining (e.g., in the United States). The simplest method of gold mining is panning, which involves filling a circular dish with gold-bearing sand or gravel, holding it under a stream of water and swirling

Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining Without Mercury

21/11/2018  To perform direct smelting, a miner, community mining consortium, or processing shop employs a crucible, a high temperature bowl designed for smelting. Gold concentrate is combined with a flux, such as borax or other materials of mixtures, in the crucible. The flux acts to decrease the melting temperature and viscosity of non-gold minerals in the concentrate so

Smelting - Wikipedia

Smelting is a process of applying heat to ore in order to extract a base metal.It is a form of extractive metallurgy.It is used to extract many metals from their ores, including silver, iron, copper, and other base metals.Smelting uses heat and a chemical reducing agent to decompose the ore, driving off other elements as gases or slag and leaving the metal base behind.
