How much water required in mining gold? AZGS

2021-8-3  Estimates for average water consumption at a mine site vary considerably based on the processing method applied (e.g., heap leaching, flotation, gravity), but a global summary for water withdrawals for gold mines found the ‘average’ gold mine used ~0.350 m3/metric ton of ore-grade rock (Gunson, 2013). As such, the annual amount of water used will ...

The environmental impact of gold production

2019-7-25  For an ore grade (i.e. metal content) of 3.5 gram per tonne of ore, the study estimated that production of each tonne of gold from non-refractory ore used approximately 200,000 gigajoules (GJ) of energy and 260,000 tonnes of water. It produced 18,000 tonnes of GHGs (CO2 equivalent) and 1,270,000 tonnes of waste solids. For refractory ores, the GHG emissions and energy use were about 50% higher, owing to additional processing steps required. Per tonne of metal produced these figures were several orders of magnitude greater than those for other metals, such as steel and aluminium. However, gold is produced in much smaller quantities, so the total environmental footprint for global gold

Cyanide Use in Gold Mining - Earthworks

Mining lower grade ore requires the extraction and processing of much more ore to get the same amount of gold. Partially due to cyanide, modern mines are. much larger than before cyanide was used; create vast open pits; and; produce huge quantities of waste. More than 20 tons of mine waste are generated to produce enough gold for a typical ring.
