Thanks!
It was illuminating!
What was the link for the gold mining information?

Hi Karl. Thank you for asking.

Mercury Free Mining

I was on a panel with MFM's founder at JCK. Rob Bates provided a good summary of the purpose and mission.

Waiting for the video, 4AM is a bit early even for me!

But re mercury, cyanide is as bad or worse. Drums of cyanide have the leftovers dumped in them after riffle boards and mercury screening. Cyanide is one of the only chemicals that bonds with gold and is used illicitly. You may remember the spill in Romania or somewhere a decade or so ago. Killed all fish life in the Danube.
A press release a year ago from Aussie Curtin Uni said they had a promising cleaner alternative.
I just wrote to the head researcher to follow up. The good people at https://www.resolve.ngo/craft.htm could implement something like that.

If you missed our latest webinar with John and Dave on Diamond Traceability (or just like them so much you want to see it again), you can watch it now on-demand on our YouTube channel. Like the video, if you found it interesting or educational, and we look forward to any comments!
