Effect of resident microbiota on the solubilization of gold in soil from the Tomakin Park Gold Mine, New South Wales, Australia

Reith, Frank; McPhail, Derry


The processes influencing the solubilization and observed mobility of Au in soil were studied using a combination of geochemical and microbiological techniques. In this study, we demonstrate for the first time that biotic processes mediated by the resident microbiota are likely to control the mobilization of Au in auriferous soils and other regolith materials. Microcosms with auriferous soils from the Tomakin Park Gold Mine in temperate south eastern New South Wales, Australia, were incubated...[Show more]
