Copper Ore An Overview Sciencedirect Topics

The most important microbes involved in the bioleaching of copper are the sulfur bacteria Thiobacillus ferrooxidans and Thiobacillus thiooxidans. T. ferrooxidans , sometimes called ferros , is an acidophilic bacterium that oxidizes bivalent iron into trivalent iron and attacks soluble sulfur as well as insoluble sulfides to convert them into sulfates.

Feb 28, 2015 Thiobacillus bacteria are acidophilic aerobic chemolithotrophs which grow most rapidly at a pH in the range of 2-3. T. ferrooxidans derive their energy by oxidizing ferrous iron, elemental sulfur and reduced sulfur compounds and utilize carbon from carbon dioxide for biosynthesis (Hutchins et al, 1982).

Water Quality In Open Pit Precious Metal Mines

Bacteria such as Thiobacillus ferrooxidans accelerate the rate of ferrous-iron oxidation and of reduced-sulfur oxidation at pH less than 4, and thus accelerate the rate of acid production. As long as pH is maintained above about 4 the rate of acid formation is slow (U.C. Berkeley Mining Waste Study Team, 1988).
