M.Eng/MASc project in Biomining Project
M.Eng/MASc project in Biomining Extraction of base metals from sulfide minerals has led to worldwide challenges with sulfide-laden tailings that represent a potential environmental problem and are costly to clean up. These waste “reservoirs” can also contain a large quantity of metals, such as nickel, gold, or copper, albeit at low concentrations. The Biomining Consortium led out of the University … Read More
Elements of bio-mining: Engineering collaboration aims to turn mine waste into valuable metals
http://news.engineering.utoronto.ca/elements-bio-mining-engineering-collaboration-aims-turn-mine-waste-valuable-metals Posted September 13th, 2017 by Tyler Irving Elements of bio-mining: Engineering collaboration aims to turn mine waste into valuable metals An industry-academic collaboration led by U of T Engineering professors is studying the use of microorganisms to treat mine waste in tailings ponds. The researchers also hope to extract valuable metals that could offset the cost of processing. (Photo: … Read More
