Bioleaching: Introduction, Methods, Application, Copper

Large quantities of low-grade ores are produced during the separation of higher-grade ores and are generally discarded in waste heaps. Metals from such ores cannot economically be processed with chemical methods. There are large quantities of such low-grade ores especially copper ores, which can be processed profitably by bio-leaching.
