Biomining: metal recovery from ores with microorganisms

Bioleaching is a conversion of an insoluble valuable metal into a soluble form by means of microorganisms. In biooxidation, on the other hand, gold is predominantly unlocked from refractory ores in large-scale stirred-tank biooxidation arrangements for further processing steps. In addition to copper and gold production, biomining is also used

Microbes and mineral recovery: Bioleaching of copper,

2020-4-22  The leaching of sulfide minerals distinguishes bioleaching from conventional acid leaching. Bioleaching involves the use of microorganisms to catalyze the oxidation of iron sulfides to create ferric sulfate and sulfuric acid. Bioleaching is used today in commercial operations to process ores of copper, nickel, cobalt, zinc and uranium.
