Paper Title:
Impacts of Mineralogy on the Chemistry and Microbiology of Heap Bioleaching
  Abstract

The microbial microenvironment in heaps is strongly influenced by ore mineralogy. While laboratory studies on microbial activity under controlled conditions provide a good understanding how bioleaching organisms might assist in metal extraction, examination of the ore, its mineralogy and leaching chemistry offer additional valuable insights. Some examples are discussed and illustrated with data for a copper-nickel sulfide ore.
