Mining Mercury in Nevada

2013-12-17  Results showed that capping mining waste materials with a low-Hg substrate can reduce Hg emissions from between 50 to nearly 100%. The spraying of typical dust control solutions often results in higher Hg emissions, especially as materials dry after application. The concentrated application of a dithiocarbamate Hg control reagent

Methanogenesis Is an Important Process in Controlling

The inhibition of methanogenesis at the mining sites led to an increase in MeHg production up to 16.6-fold and a decrease in MeHg degradation by up to 77%, suggesting that methanogenesis is associated with MeHg degradation as Hg concentrations increased.

Mercury Distribution and Speciation in Soils Affected by ...

2008-10-31  Vertical distribution and mercury speciation in soil profiles were studied to evaluate the extent of contamination and potential Hg mobility in a historical Hg mining area. Three sites were chosen for a case study of Hg contamination. One site was considered a low impact site located 400 m uphill from the mining activities and two sites were located in a presumably more highly impacted area ...

2013-8-27  The low Hg levels in the control groups compared to residents and workers indicate that the Hg burden of ASGMs and residents of mining sites stem from gold mining activities. The refiners generally showed very high Hg levels, possibly due to a high frequency and duration of exposure to Hg vapours and refining taking place indoors in poorly ...

The Monte Amiata mining district (MAMD) in southern Tuscany, Italy, was the 3rd largest Hg producer worldwide (more than 100,000 tons between 1847 and 1982; Rimondi et al., 2015).Among the 42 mines present in this district (Bellander et al., 1998; Ferrara et al., 1998), the Siele mine was the first to start production in modern times in 1847 (Strappa, 1977).

Mercury Exposure and Health Impacts among Individuals

2014-7-1  Background: Mercury (Hg) is used in gold mining to extract gold from ore by forming “amalgam”—a mixture composed of approximately equal parts mercury and gold. Approximately 15 million people, including approximately 3 million women and children, participate in artisanal small-scale gold mining (ASGM) in developing countries. Thirty-seven percent of global air emissions of Hg are ...
