The Role of Arsenic in the Mining Industry

Arsenic is a naturally occurring element commonly found as an impurity in metal ores, and is produced commercially for use in pesticides, wood preservatives, and metal alloys. Arsenic can be toxic in large doses, and the mining industry monitors and prevents its release into the environment. [32] Background

Arsenic in Historic Gold Mine Tailings - Nova Scotia

How did arsenic get into the environment at old gold mines? 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 to remove the gold. The mercury was then evaporated, leaving the gold. The remaining sand-like substance, known as tailings, was typically dumped into low-lying areas or lakes and streams near the mine. The arsenic

Arsenic in Gold Processing: Mineral Processing and ...

26-04-2007  The processing of gold bearing sulphide minerals which contain arsenopyrite and other complex arsenic sulphide minerals results in arsenic containing emissions and effluents which must be given careful consideration in relation to clean air and clean water standards.

Developments in Arsenic Management in the Gold Industry ...

01-01-2016  The majority of arsenic emissions, worldwide, are as compounds such as minerals and trioxide. Gold-mining and -processing operations were primarily used for Table 41.2. So, for example, some copper-mining and -processing operations (e.g., Olympic Dam, in Australia) that may produce significant gold were not used in this analysis.

Environmental occurrence and impacts of arsenic at gold ...

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.

Environmental and human health risks of arsenic in gold ...

01-10-2020  Knowledge of arsenic (As) levels in gold (Au) mining areas in the Amazon is critical for determining environmental risks and the health of the local population, mainly because this region has the largest mineral potential in Brazil and one of the largest in the world.

Arsenic Mining Processing Equipment Flow Chart Cases ...

Most arsenic is obtained not from an ore mineral of arsenic, but as a by-product in the treatment of gold, silver, copper, and other metal ores. Environmental laws require that arsenic be removed from ores, so that it does not enter the environment in effluent gases, fluids, or solids.

Geochemical study of gold and arsenic mineralization of ...

The results show that gold was probably deposited together with arsenic as coupled solid solutions in sulfide minerals in the early stage of mineralization. Metallogenic chemical reactions concerning gold deposition in the Carlin-type As-rich gold deposits would involve oxidation of gold and concurrent reduction of arsenic.
