environmental impacts of gold electrolysis

Environmental impact of high-value gold scrap

2020-8-25  Purpose The gold routes satisfying the global gold supply are mining (74%), recycling of high-value gold (23%), and electronic scraps (3%). Besides its applications in the investment, jewelry, and industrial sector, gold also has a bad image. The gold production in industrial as well as artisanal and small-scale mines creates negative impacts such as resource depletion, extensive chemical use ...

The environmental impact of gold mine tailings

Gold mining in South Africa resulted in vast volumes of tailings, which have been deposited in impoundments. Poor management of most of the tailings dams resulted in the escape of seepage, adversely affecting soils and water quality. Some tailings dams have been partially or completely reclaimed leaving contaminated footprints. These zones pose a serious threat to the underlying

Hilson G (2002) The environmental impact of small

In Africa, Ghana is the second largest gold producer, contributing to about 5.7% of the country’s GDP. The mining sector in Ghana consists of both small-scale and large-scale mining, each of which has varying environmental impacts. This paper provides an exposition on the environmental impacts of mining activities in Ghana.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of a gold

EIA is a process aimed to identify, predict, evaluate, and balance the biophysical, social, and other impacts prior to making basic decisions [5]. In fact, it is a tool in environmental administration used to assess the effects of project activities on the environment with an avoidance approach [6].

A Systemic Analysis of the Environmental Impacts of

Exploratory modelling of the impact of gold mining on groundwater in a strategic water area of South Africa was undertaken. A systems dynamics (SD) model was developed to simulate the impact of gold mining on water quality, focusing on groundwater contamination risk, within the context of competing developmental priorities around water resource development and the socio-economic gains from ...

Study of electrochemical redox of gold for refining in

2015-6-24  The electrorefining of gold by simple electrolysis was investigated in the ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methyl-imidazolium bis (trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (EMIMTFSI) with titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4) used as a supporting electrolyte at room temperature. From the cyclic voltammetry results, optimal electrorefining conditions were found for selective dissolution of gold from an anode and for ...
