WIM UK Event: Bioleaching of Mineral Resources

May 19, 2022 at 18:00 - 21:00

The MinSouth technical meeting in conjunction with Women in Mining UK will be presented by Dr Ana Santos. Ana graduated with a PhD from Bangor University in 2018 and is currently a Research Fellow in Geomicrobiology at the Natural History Museum.

Her talk will be on microbial-based technologies for extraction and recovery of metals from mine wastes. These waste materials contain concentrations of critical and other metals that make them attractive for reprocessing using bioleaching and bioremediation technologies, with the important secondary benefit that this can eliminate or greatly reduce the threat that these wastes pose to the surrounding environments. Strategies have been developed for extracting and recovering metals from both solid and aqueous mine wastes and example of these strategies will be presented as case studies.
