Bioleaching
Bioleaching

Bioleaching is the extraction of metals from their ores through the use ofanisms.This is much cleaner than the traditional heap leaching using cyanide. Bioleaching is one of several applications within biohydrometallurgy and several methods are used to recover copper, zinc, lead, arsenic, antimony, nickel, molybdenum, gold, silver, and cobalt
