How much water required in mining gold? AZGS

2021-5-26  Thanks for your interesting question about water usage in gold mining. As a bit of background, managing water is one of the most important environmental considerations at mining operations. The most common uses of water in mining are in processing ore (e.g., grinding, flotation) and in watering mining roads to suppress dust (Stevens, 2010).

The impact of artisanal gold mining, ore processing

2021-4-11  Marmato, Colombia, has been an important centre of gold mining since before the first Spanish colonizers arrived in 1536. The Marmato deposit is hosted in a dacite and andesite porphyry stock as sheeted sulphide-rich veinlet systems. The district is currently experiencing a surge in both major mining projects and artisanal mining, driven by sustained high gold prices. Ore from small-scale and ...
