LODE Commences Production at Mercury and Gold Extraction Facility
LODE announced on 22 September 2021 that Clean Mercury Remediation Technologies has acquired the final permission and begun full operations in the company’s first commercial mercury remediation system in the Philippines. To dissolve gold from natural sources, mercury-dependent ASGM employs the amalgamation process.
Usually, the amalgam is separated by hand and then heated to remove the mercury and isolate the gold. Mercury is a problem for both human health and the environment since leftover ASGM wastes pollute water into food chains.
