Patio Process Silver Mining

Jun 04, 2014 During the patio process, silver ore was finely crushed and mixed with salt, water, copper sulfate, and mercury. This mixture was spread in a one to two foot layer in an outdoor patio. After weeks of mixing and sun exposure, the native silver in the ore would bind with the mercury to form an amalgam. After that, pure silver could be extracted

    The patio process is a process for extracting silver from ore. It is processed for separating silver from the ore by amalgamating it with mercury on an open floor. The process was invented by Bartolom de Medina in Pachuca, Mexico, in 1554. The patio process was the first process to use mercury amalgamation to recover silver from ore

    These New World mines, much richer in silver, resulted in the rise of South and Central America as the largest silver-producing areas in the world. For the recovery of New World silver, the Patio process was employed. Silver-bearing ore was ground and then mixed with salt, roasted copper ore, and mercury

    Mar 09, 2016 II. The Patio Process. Subsequently, I had occasion to occupy myself with the treatment of ores by the patio process. The ores consisted of a quartz mass, carrying a mixture in variable proportions of miargyrite, polybasito, silver-glance, pyrites, oxides of iron and manganese, and finally some native silver and calcite; zinc blende was

    Process Silver was first obtained in sixteenth-century Mexico by a method called the patio process. It involved mixing silver ore, salt, copper sulphide, and water. The resultant silver chloride was then picked up by adding mercury. This inefficient method was superseded by the von Patera process

    Silver also occurs alongside lead, copper and zinc ores, which is why nearly 50% of mined Silver today is obtained when processing other kinds of ore. Silver is separated from this ore using a chemical process known as smelting. To begin a new Silver mine, a system of multi-layered crosscuts are made

    The process works best when the ore is crushed to small pieces before roasting. Additives, such as common rock salt are often added to the mix before it is heated to enhance the reaction of the sulfides. Once the ores are fully roasted, and the sulfur is driven off, the extraction of the gold or silver from the ore is not especially difficult

    For this reason, silver smelting is often a beneficial byproduct of refining copper or lead, and it is a multi-stage process. Copper-bearing ores that contain around 0.2% silver are first crushed and then smelted in a blister process that produces a waste product known as slime, which contains up to 20% silver
