Gans was born in Prague, Kingdom of Bohemia and was therefore most likely related to David Gans, who settled there in 1564.[2] 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."[3] 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.[3] Gans' most dramatic scientific discovery was to reduce the time to purify a batch of copper ore from sixteen weeks to just four days.[4][5] Additionally, Gans was able to use the impurities removed from the copper ore in textile dyes.
These discoveries along with the general body of his scientific work led to a degree of fame.[citation needed] It is likely that Gans served as the model for the heroic Jewish scientist, Joabin, in English Lord Chancellor Francis Bacon's utopian novel, The New Atlantis.[5]
