artisanal small scale mining and mercury

Little abrasion wear, Long service life

Based on 30 years of development experience of grinding equipment, LM Heavy Industry produced LUM Series Superfine Vertical Roller Grinding Mill to make ultra-fine powder. The grinding roller doesn't contact with millstone usually, which makes abrasion little and service life longer.

Applications: Superfine dry powder of none-metal ores such as calcite, marble, limestone, coarse whiting, talc, barite and dolomite and so on.

Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining Without Mercury

In many countries, elemental mercury is used in artisanal and small-scale gold mining. Mercury is mixed with gold-containing materials, forming a mercury-gold amalgam which is then heated, vaporizing the mercury to obtain the gold. This process can be very dangerous and lead to significant mercury
