parting is the separation of silver from gold and a process during which the base metals are separated from both but as the presence of a high percentage of these base metals is injurious to the successful conduct of the processes which are chiefly in use a preliminary refining by one of the methods already described is usually necessary.
extracting gold from rock we need to separate the gold from everything else in the rock so the rock needs to be treated in some way. in some cinnabar ores where the mercury sulfide concentration is high you can actually see small beads of metallic mercury in the ore. it certainly wasn't the with our cinnabar unfortunately.
much of the liquid mercury was sent to sierra nevada gold mines where miners spilled tons of it into streams and soil to extract the precious ore. a separate cluster of derelict mercury mines

first melt the total gold in one place put it in a glass beaker and pour 100 ml of sulphur and boil at 1150 degrees of heat when the temperature go too high you will find some sort of gas going
