Gemstones and Sustainable Development Knowledge Hub

Environmental impacts of mining largely depend on the methods used and the geological context that governs how easily the minerals can be separated from the ore material. Unlike gold mining, which often uses potentially toxic chemicals such as mercury and cyanide, gemstone mining does not depend on chemicals for extraction of the rough material. The main issues surrounding gemstone mining are:

rotating impact gold mining machine

A gold dredge is a placer mining machine that extracts gold from sand, gravel, and dirt using water and mechanical methods.. The original gold dredges were large, multistory machines built in the first half of the 1900s. Small suction machines are currently marketed as gold dredges to individuals seeking gold: just offshore from the beach of Nome, Alaska, for instance.
