Bacillus cereus, gold and associated elements in soil and other regolith samples from Tomakin Park Gold Mine in southeastern New South Wales, Australia

Reith, Frank; McPhail, Derry; Christy, Andrew


Efficient exploration for new Au deposits is increasingly important as existing deposits become depleted. This is particularly relevant in Australia, where exploration can be difficult because of a thick regolith cover. New and effective methods of exploration need to be developed, and possibilities lie in geomicrobiological methods. For instance, Bacillus cereus, a common soil bacterium, has been shown to act as a biogeochemical indicator for concealed mineralisations, including vein-type Au...[Show more]
