Small Scale Gold Mining Equipment in Australia

Small Scale Mining in Modern Time

Small-scale mining is the main supplier of many different metals and minerals for the world market. For instance, the world demand for beryllium and fluorspar is by and large met by smallscale mining, while the copper and phosphate market is completely dominated by large-scale, commercial mining.

There are two main forms of small-scale mining: extraction from primary and extraction from secondary deposits. Extraction from primary deposits means that the ore is taken directly from the rock. Extraction from secondary deposits means that the ore is found in sand and gravel in rivers and torrents. Mining of gold from quartz veins is an example of extraction from primary deposits. SBM provides complete range of small scale gold mining equipment in Australia and all over the world.

Small Scale Gold Mining Operation

After mining the rock, the gold ore is crushed and ground and the heavy minerals, including gold, are concentrated by means of an old-fashioned gold diggers pan. In order to separate the gold from the other heavy minerals, the socalled amalgamation method is often used. In this process, mercury is added to the heavymineral concentrate. Mercury and the heavy minerals are mixed by hand and the gold amalgamates with the mercury.

Amalgamation is an efficient method to extract the gold. Mining from secondary or alluvial deposits includes material eroded from rock and then transported by wind and water to be deposited in layers of sand and gravel.
