Gold ore processing uses cyanide (CN(-) ), which often results in large volumes of thiocyanate- (SCN(-) ) contaminated wastewater requiring treatment. Microbial communities can degrade SCN(-) and… Expand
Genome‐resolved metagenomics of a bioremediation system for degradation of thiocyanate in mine water containing suspended solid tailings
Thiocyanate (SCN−) is a toxic compound that forms when cyanide (CN−), used to recover gold, reacts with sulfur species. SCN−‐degrading microbial communities have been studied, using bioreactors fed… Expand
