Biomining: Turning Waste into Gold Sustainably with

2020-11-18  In a process that takes up to 48 hours, finely ground waste is incubated along with the biomining microbes. Once they have leached out the metals, these are recovered from the mix using an adsorber resin. “The major advantage is the sustainability of the processes,” said Gabor. “It replaces aggressive or toxic chemicals by microbial ...
