Mineralogical and Chemical Characteristics of Biomats in the Mining and Mineral Deposit Area
Entry ID: BIOMATS_MINING_AREA

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Formation of various biomats is commonly observed in the waste rocks
and drainage ditches in the surrounding area of mines and deposits. By
the electron microscopic observation of the biomats, the deposition of
heavy metals and the formation of minerals in the cell of
microorganisms and algae are observed. This paper presents the results
observed in the drainage ditches of Omori Silver Mine and Homanzan
Mine in Shimane Prefecture, former Nakadatsu Mine in Fukui Prefecture,
and Hishikari Mine in Kagoshima Prefecture.
