Abstract
The conventional method of gold refining process is widely used and it seems no further effort has been taken to improvise the system. Safety, productivity and reliability issue remains to be crucial barrier to local jewelers to refine their in-house gold scrap. The findings have brought the researcher to conduct site visits to some of the refinery centers to identify their popularly known conventional gold refinery process. Based on researcher early observation during the site visits has founded that current refinery practice seems unsafe and dangerous due to improper handling of acidic chemical substances and unhealthy refining procedures at the workplace. The process normally produce smokes, poisonous fumes and smells that could endanger human’s health, safety and pollutes the environment largely without proper control measures.
