9/17/2018 Bioleaching - Application of Biotechnology in Mining Industry 2/7 II) Indirect Bioleaching In the indirect method of bioleaching of minerals bacteria produces strong oxidizing agents which react with metals and extract them from the ores. Bacteria produce oxidizing agents such as ferric ions and sulphuric acid on oxidation of soluble iron and soluble sulphur respectively.

For example, one application of biotechnology is the directed use of organisms for the manufacture of organic products (examples include beer and milk products). Another example is using naturally present bacteria by the mining industry in bioleaching.

Mining and resources; Mining; Mining biotechnology. We develop innovative bioprocesses for mining industries to allow sustainable recovery of resources from low grade ores and wastes, and mitigation of environmental impacts of mining and metallurgical operations.

Biomining is the technique of extracting metals from ores and other solid materials typically using prokaryotes, fungi or plants (phytoextraction also known as phytomining or biomining). These organisms secrete different organic compounds that chelate metals from the environment and bring it back to the cell where they are typically used to coordinate electrons.

Metal mining faces a number of significant economic and environmental challenges in the twenty-first century for which established and emerging biotechnologies may, at least in part, provide the answers. Bioprocessing of mineral ores and concentrates is already used in variously engineered formats t …
