Bruce is an Artist, serial entrepreneur, research chemist, & the President of Alchemy Mining Group, Inc., an innovation provider with a scalable ESG-driven climate action initiative. Building on the experience of our contemporaries who continue to address the mercury human health threats & biodiversity destruction caused by artisanal miner’s gold ore processing, my perspective to address this issue on a scale large enough to drive change, is through the gold ore processing facilities.

We propose to use a solution extracted from the bitter cassava plant, commonly known as manipueira or cassava toxic waste-water, as a gold leaching lixiviant to sustainably recover more gold from ore safely than by using mercury, a deadly neurotoxin.

The limiting behavior of the scaled particle theory (spt) of gas solubility has been examined for the inert gases in a range of solvents. The hard sphere limit is shown to exhibit thermodynamic self-consistency only with the inclusion of an effective hard sphere diameter temperature dependence whereas the original spt (exclusion of a temperature...
The solubilities of various gases in H2O and 2H2O are reported over a temperature range of 5–40°C. A gas chromatographic technique which allows the simultaneous determination of the gas solubility in both solvents is employed. The technique described allows the saturation solubility to be determined by a direct comparison to a pure gas calibration...

ABSTRACT The extension of Scaled Particle Theory (SPT) to the predictions of the thermodynamic properties of dissolved gases was first demonstrated in 1963. Over the intervening years this theory has been extensively used and has always been shown to provide excellent agreement with experimental data. No modifications of the original theory have be...

A frequently occurring problem in many types of investigation is the with-drawal of gas samples of known size from a vacuum system at sub-atmospheric pressure, and their injection into a gas chromatograph.

Alchemy Mining Group, Inc., (“AMGI”) is an innovation provider with a scalable ESG-driven climate action initiative which has been designed to safely leach crushed and milled ore to; (i) sustainably recover more gold and silver than by using mercury, a deadly neurotoxin, which today is widely used as a lixiviant, and; (ii) leach precious metals from tailings waste generated during ore processing.
