Artisanal Gold Mining

Here are two things related to my projects with Artisanal Gold Mining in Nicaragua.

Below is a video I made that describes the artisanal gold mining process using mercury-gold amalgamation in the Mining Triangle, Nicaragua.

Here is a document I wrote based on the work of Marcello Veiga that describes in Spanish some of the ways to reduce the risks of working with mercury in the artisanal gold mining process. I made this document as part of a project with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center I am working on investigating the potential ototoxic effects of mercury on hearing among gold miners in Nicaragua.

¿Cómo Reducir Los Riesgos Del Mercurio? (How do I reduce the risks of mercury?)
