Mercury-Free Gold Extraction Using Borax for Small-Scale ...

Small-scale gold mining is the largest anthropogenic contributor of mercury pollution on planet Earth. The miners grind gold ore together with mercury in order to recover the fine gold grains. The gold amalgam is burned whereby the mercury evaporates and gold is left behind. This processing extracts only a fraction of the gold in the ore and the released mercury causes serious global health ...

Using Borax Flux to Refine Gold - Manhattan Gold Silver

2013-8-7  With some borax, heat, and a little know-how, it’s possible to extract pure gold from a sample of ore. This is because using borax as the flux reduces the melting point of all the elements in a piece of ore, including gold. While out in the field, a gold prospector can grind and wash a piece of ore, then mix it with borax in a plastic bag.

2014-6-29  This vid is a touch confusing as the Borax is'nt as far as I can see doing any extracting until smelting, seems to be crushed, milled, then sluiced and panned out, then Borax just added to the final concentrate for smelting. I guess in the final concentrate the Borax may help release the Gold out of the heavies better than Mercury can.

Borax replacing mercury in small-scale mining

2017-3-29  Borax (Na2B4O710H2O) is a component of many detergents. Its use in gold extraction is environmental benign. The basic principle behind the method is that borax reduces the melting point of all miner-als, including gold. The melting point of gold is 1063ºC, which is a much higher temperature than can be obtained by inexpensive burners.

2009-9-20  I think you might be mistaking the process. Use the borax sparingly to just precoat the melting dish, then put your gold powder into the melting dish, and begin heating. If you still have issues with the borax adhereing to the gold, a drop in some room temp water while the gold is still hot should shock the silicates off from your nugget.
