Biomining: metal recovery from ores with microorganisms

Biomining is an increasingly applied biotechnological procedure for processing of ores in the mining industry (biohydrometallurgy). Nowadays the production of copper from low-grade ores is the most important industrial application and a significant part of world copper production already originates from heap or dump/stockpile bioleaching.

Effects of a deep-sea mining experiment on seafloor ...

Recovery was previously assessed in 1989, 1992, and 1996 until this study in 2015. During DISCOL, the impact of deep-sea mining on the benthic ecosystem was simulated by ploughing the ~4150-m-deep seafloor repeatedly with a plough harrow in an area of 11 km 2 . The current study revisited the DISCOL experimental area (DEA) in 2015, 26 years ...

2016-5-5 · The article attempts to investigate the status of permafrost recovery after excavation backfill in an opencast coal mine. To do that, we forecast the permafrost recovery under certain initial temperatures and different boundary conditions by using the numerical simulation method. The results show that the filling temperature significantly influences permafrost recovery after

Paper: Full-scale experiments to measure the effect of ...

Abstract: A major disadvantage of the sublevel cave (SLC) mining method is the potential for substantial dilution and ore loss. Scale-model experiments demonstrate that gravity flow and recovery in SLC mines is affected by crosscut geometry. Several authors also suggest that crosscut height affects the digging depth of loading equipment and therefore influences

The Effects of Backfilling on Ground Control and Recovery ...

The ability of backfill to provide additional ground support may enhance coal recovery by allowing for the design of undersized pillars. Backfill has been used extensively in hard rock mining but has found limited use in coal mining. Its adaptability to thin-seam coal mining has been examined and is presented in this thesis.
