Arsenic in Historic Gold Mine Tailings - Nova Scotia

2009-9-4  When gold was mined in Nova Scotia in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the gold-bearing rock that also contained arsenic was crushed and spread over liquid mercury toremove the gold. The mercury was then evaporated, leaving the gold. The remainingsand-like substance, known as tailings, was typically dumped into low-lying areas orlakes and streams near the mine. The arsenic is still present in

The Role of Arsenic in the Mining Industry

2015-5-14  Arsenic in the mining industry . Atmospheric arsenic emissions from copper smelting represent the largest contribution of arsenic from the mining and metals industry by far and have been the focus of pollution control technologies and increasingly stringent regulations.

Environmental occurrence and impacts of arsenic at

Arsenic is a common element in the natural environment and is frequently a significant component in gold deposits of the western United States. Such deposits contain various forms of arsenic: arsenides, sulfides, and sulfosalts. Upon weathering such minerals routinely lower the pH of nearby waters, mobilizing arsenic and other metals.

Cyanide Use in Gold Mining - Earthworks

Mining lower grade ore requires the extraction and processing of much more ore to get the same amount of gold. Partially due to cyanide, modern mines are. much larger than before cyanide was used; create vast open pits; and; produce huge quantities of waste. More than 20 tons of mine waste are generated to produce enough gold for a typical ring.
