Abstract of the Article
Millions of people worldwide are involved in artisanal mining and the crafting of precious metals. Mercury is a common additive for extracting gold from ore, and potential health impacts are substantial. A number of initiatives are under way to reduce mercury releases and exposures, and a recent pilot demonstration of a retort installation shop has demonstrated a 20-fold reduction in airborne levels within a small Brazilian gold shop. Information technology and educational outreach are key to increasing local awareness of the mercury threat and options for mitigating exposure, including via trainers. A prototype website is being developed to serve as an information resource for this effort.
