Using a Knudsen centrifugal concentrator to process crushed gold ore in Meekatharra Western Australia.
This is our first video in our five part series of our trip to Kenya to install a shaker table to help eliminate the use of mercury by the smalls scale gold miners. We met with Julius who is the president of the MICA gold mining cooperative and donated a shaker table to MICA to show the miners a different technology for gold concentration other than the use of mercury. Once the shaker table was set up the miners were amazed! The shaker table on average recovered 2-3 times more gold from the same material they had been processing with their blanket/burlap sluices and mercury use. The table can also process the material up to 10 times faster than the blanket/burlap sluices. The result being in some cases 30 times more gold for the miners in the same amount of processing time. Stay tuned for...
Small scale miners help lift national output for precious metal in Zimbabwe. The South African nation's gold production has been increasing steadily after slumping to an all time low of just three tonnes in 2008, the peak of the country's economic meltdown.
This is from an undisclosed location in Katanga, DRC. Small-scale (or informal) miners risk their lives by gathering on a slope at the limits of an open-pit copper mine, to scavenge for the copper pieces that might remain in the debris thrown down the slope. The video dates to May 2012.
So it is time to wake all the equipment and get things ready for a flying start to the mining season in the Nth QLD goldfields. I'm a new chum on old worked ground and with only small equipment trying to make it all work, I would love to share my adventure with you all.
The Philippine deposits of gold, copper, chromium and nickel are considered as the 5th largest in the world. In 2009, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) estimated the country's gold reserves at 5,080,785,289 tons, based accordingly on the bureau's consolidation of resource inventory data supplied by mining companies. Forty provinces that have gold deposits practice different ways of mining gold that has been hand down from their ancestors since 3rd century. The Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining (ASGM) is very common to the rural areas of the Philippines because of the constant surge in the price of gold and easy way out of poverty. ASGM, which occurs in more than 70 countries, provides income to an estimated 10 - 15 m...
Small-scale mining across Indonesia has grown sharply in the past decade, mirroring a rise in gold prices. The use of mercury and the destruction of sensitive habitat for critically endangered species are particular concerns. This story is available on mangabay.com (June 3, Pacific time).

Ein Film von Katja Becker und Jonathan Happ (2016) in Zusammenarbeit mit dem vom BMBF-geförderten Forschungsprojekt AFRASO –"Afrika's Asiatische Optionen" (http://www.afraso.org). Wissenschaftliches Konzept: Diderot Nguepjouo und Jürgen Runge Over the last decade, Cameroon’s artisanal and small-scale mining sector has gone through several mutations thanks to the new policy which has attracted various international investors from Asia, Africa, Europe, and America. As from 2012 on, the involvement of Chinese entrepreneurs has dramatically accelerated the pace of progress in the sector. Some of them switched from other economic activities they were already pursuing in the country whilst the others, mostly mining professionals, moved from the Ghanaian gold mining business to Cameroon. Chines...
Many people in Africa live on less than two dollars a day. Some have turned to natural resources as a source of livelihood. In the Eastern Cameroonian town of Batouri, residents are digging for gold in makeshift gold mines in the hope of eking out a better life for themselves.
