What is Biomining? (with pictures)

Biomining consists of two different refinement techniques: bioleaching or biooxidation. Although biological refinement of minerals shows great promise in the processing of a range of elements, the majority of biomining activity at present centers around the extraction of copper and gold. Biomining is used to extract copper from copper ore.
