2002-6-1  The study of gold sites in the Migori Gold Belt, Kenya, revealed that the concentrations of heavy metals, mainly Hg, Pb and As are above acceptable levels. Tailings at the panning sites recorded values of 6.5–510 mg kg−1 Pb, 0.06–76.0 mg kg−1 As and 0.46–1920 mg kg−1 Hg. Stream sediments had values of 3.0–11075 mg kg−1 Pb, 0.014–1.87 mg kg−1 As and 0.28–348 mg kg−1 Hg.

Modern Environmental Health Hazards: A Public

An important source of direct human exposure to high levels of Hg in Africa is artisanal gold mining and processing. Hg exposures from artisanal gold mining are mostly to the vaporized metallic form (Savornin et al. 2007). Specifically, the highest exposure to vaporized elemental Hg occurs during burning to separate gold from the gold–Hg amalgam.
