Biochemistry of Acid Mine Drainage
- 83 Downloads
In general, the involvement of biological systems in acid mine drainage can be arbitrarily divided into three categories: (1) the influence of acid drainage on biological systems, (2) the influence of organisms on formation of acid drainage, and, (3) biological means of abatement and treatment. Distinction between two categories of microbes is made on the basis of nutritional requirements. Both types have been discussed extensively in the literature (Dugan and Randles, 1968; Ivanov, 1964; Kelly, 1967; Silverman and Ehrlich, 1964).
