UBC Okanagan identifies bacteria linked to acid-rock drainage at mines

from Kelowna Capital News

"Mining waste is an environmental concern in many parts of the world and currently costs a great deal of time and money to the companies that deal with it responsibly," Deborah Roberts, a professor of engineering at UBC Okanagan said in a press release. "Now that we have isolated the type of micro-organisms contributing to this issue, further research may help us manage them with antibiotics, like other bacterial infections." more
