  • The environmental impact of gold production

    The stages that contributed the most to gold’s environmental impact were mining and comminution (crushing and grinding of the ore). Electricity use was responsible for just over half of the GHG emissions. This indicates that attempts to lessen the environmental impact of gold production should focus on these two stages.

    20/04/2019· Environmental impacts of gold mining in the Amazon have been analyzed using LCA. In the past two centuries, these emissions have been predominantly associated to gold and silver mining, as well as mercury production, the later used in the former activities (Driscoll et al., 2013; Streets et al., 2011). Other activities where mercury is used include the production of lead and zinc and the
