Mercury Free Mining Inc. (MFM) is delighted by the groundswell of interest in and support from the jewelry industry for our mission to eradicate the use of mercury in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM), ensuring the public’s trust in the gold supply chain.

Thanks in large part to the visionary and ground-breaking support of generous donors like you, Mercury Free Mining has been increasingly embraced and supported by jewelers, jewelry companies and jewelry industry trade groups, among many others.  We are honored and delighted by this growing commitment to partner with us in transforming the tragic condition of ASGM’s inadvertent release of 12,000 pounds of toxic mercury into the environment every day, the world’s primary source of anthropogenic mercury pollution.

In August of 2020, Lashbrook became MFM’s visionary Primary Sponsor, and in January of this year, for the second year running, MFM was awarded a JCK Industry Fund grant enabling us to expand our vital program for testing and deploying innovative mercury-free gold ore processing technologies that will allow ASGM to mine safely and more profitably without the use of mercury.  We are currently importing gold ore-concentrates from South American mercury-using ASGM communities for analysis and documentation of these processor’s effectiveness.

Your much-appreciated financial contribution will help MFM eradicate the use of mercury in artisanal and small-scale gold mining, contributing to the quality of all life on earth.

Together, we are getting mercury out of gold!
