The Effect of Changing Gold Prices on Artisanal Mining

For the majority of artisanal miners there is simply no other job that pays anywhere near as much. And because capital costs are very low and labour costs are not fixed the gold price threshold below which a mining operation is no longer economical is far lower and less rigid for artisanal miners than it is for the formal industrial sector.

Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining Without Mercury

Nov 21, 2018 This process is mostly used in large scale mining operations but has been increasingly adopted in small scale mining because of its high gold recovery rate and low cost. The best practices for chemical leaching are a combination of pre-concentration and mill leaching, as they lead to the least amount of waste, a short processing time for miners, and high gold recoveries.
