technology has created great interest due to their higher efficiency, lower costs and small industrial requirements .
Her knowledge centres on using bioleaching
technology for improved metal recovery and remediation of mine wastes.
has been used for the pre-treatment of minerals, for example, for dissolving sulfides from pyrite or arsenopyrite, which contain gold and silver in their matrices [7, 8].
Parameters influencing the microbial oxidation activity in the industrial bioleaching
heap at Escondida mine, Chile.
Key words: Heavy metals, bioremediation, metal-resistant fungi, ITS, bioleaching
of metals from electronic scrap by moderately thermophilic acidophilic bacteria.
Surface properties of pyrite in the course of bioleaching
by pure culture of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans and a mixed culture of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans and Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans.
A further 5% can be earned if REBgold's bioleaching
technology can lead to a material improvement in the project economics.
of metals from ores is a practical example (Erhlich and Brierley, 1990).
Role and contribution of pure and mixed cultures of mesophiles in bioleaching
of a pyritic chalcopyrite concentrate.
Beginings of rational bioleaching
and highlights in the development of biohydrometallurgy: A brief history.
The advantages of bioleaching
are its relatively low cost, the mild conditions of the process and the subsequent low demand for energy or landfill space compared with conventional technologies .
