This new millennium belongs to biotechnology. Rapid progress is being made in minerals processing based on biological principles. Microorganisms can play a beneficial role in all facets of minerals processing, from mining to waste disposal and management. Biohydrometallurgical extraction of metals from a wide variety of ores is being commercially practiced all over the world - in Canada, the United States, Russia, South America, Australia and Europe. The interactions among biotechnology, metals and minerals are relevant to a number of emerging interdisciplinary areas such as: biogenesis and biomineralization; biomaterials processing and biomimetics; ceramics and biomedical engineering; biomineral beneficiation; bioleaching; biocorrosion, biofouling, biodeterioration, and bioenvironmental control. Written by industry experts, Mineral Biotechnology: Microbial Aspects of Mineral Beneficiation, Metal Extraction, and Environmental Control, provides the technical knowledge necessary to compete in this arena by presenting specific detailed technologies and real-world case studies.

It is available in Europe from American Technical Publishers Ltd, 27/29 Knowl Piece, Wilbury Way, Hitchin, Herts., SG4 0SX, UK.

A comprehensive review of the contents of this book can also be found in the October 2002 issue of Mining Magazine (pps. 152-154).
