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