Gans was born in Prague, Kingdom of Bohemia and was therefore most likely related to David Gans, who settled there in 1564. He is first mentioned in his professional capacity at Keswick, Cumberland, in 1581.
He introduced a new process for the "making of Copper, vitriall, and Coppris, and smeltinge of Copper and leade ures." Gans figured in the English state papers of the reign of Elizabeth I and a full description of his operations is preserved in these documents. Gans' most dramatic scientific discovery was to reduce the time to purify a batch of copper ore from sixteen weeks to just four days. Additionally, Gans was able to use the impurities removed from the copper ore in textile dyes.Web Development TorontoExtended Auto Warranty
