Mercury free gold Mining

I ran across this video on youtube

its about the danger of gold mining using mercury, for me its a surprising as well as intriguing fact
that government action hardly had any effect in prohibiting the use of mercury.

State bans on mercury use is not the answer, people need simply an alternative. Why people can't understand this simple fact?. We made progress on making abandoning fuel subsidy, but still we use such primitive coercion power on mercury bans?

the ministry of environment put a disappointing point while saying that they already put some pressures on large miners about the use of mercury by the state of law. Actually what trouble me the most is the small gold miners, who's digging gold from the pond of mercury left by the old gold miners. why? first because these workers has hardly enough benefit from gold extracting, second, nevertheless they face larger danger on mercury exposure.

In addition people working with the large gold miners could afford for health care and pension funds, and how about these poor people excavating gold using mercury on their bare hands?

I wonder when people might mass produce these kind of alternatives? or this with the great need of substitution goods , and the amount of money invested in gold excavation, may be some researcher from the BPPT could get some money by buying this and put it in mass production?

or may be they did it already,get bored and just too busy to invent some more cool and fancy stuff? and forgot to mass produce?
