# Is it possible to form an alloy of gold and zinc?

I know you can dissolve gold in mercury, but i do not have access to any. Would it be possible to dissolve it in molten zinc instead mercury.

• Of cause, if you melt both metals together you would get an alloy of both. – Andreas Nov 27 '19 at 13:11

Yes. There are alloys and intermetallic compounds up to $$\ce{44\%Au:56\%Zn}$$. This phase diagram is from here.
