  • 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.Mining and Microbiology Bangor University,2007-10-17 · Mining and Microbiology: Established, Evolving and Emerging Biotechnologies principally in the field of processing of copper and gold ores.
