Posted 3rd June 2012 by Kevin Telmer. In artisanal gold mining, mercury is essentially used to concentrate the gold. It does this by bonding with the gold to form a heavy amalgam that is then easily separated from the other minerals.Gravity Concentrating Tables,Essentially, a gravity table is a mechanized gold pan, that operates with a high degree of efficiency and continuously. The table is comprised of a deck, in somewhat of a rectangular shape, covered with riffles (raised bars running perpendicular to the feed side of the table), mounted in a near flat position, on a supporting frame that allows the table to slide along the long axis of the table.
