About this book

Describes several industrial bioleaching and biooxidation processes as well as the underlying theory and biology of the microbes involved in biomining.


Mining biotechnology; bioleaching of copper; the biox process for bio-oxidization of gold-bearing concentrates; the design and operating practice of a bacterial oxidation plant using moderate thermophiles; heap leaching of gold-bearing deposits; bio-oxidation of refractory gold ores; technical potential for bioleaching and biobenefication of ores to recover base metals; recent developments in modelling the kinetics of bioleaching; physical chemistry of bacterial leaching; optimization of bio-oxidation heaps; leaching micro-organisms; thermophiles and bioleaching.
