The Carnoulès mine is an extreme environment located in the South of France. It is an unusual ecosystem due to its acidic pH (2–3), high concentration of heavy metals, iron, and sulfate, but mainly due to its very high concentration of arsenic (up to 10 g L−1 in the tailing stock pore water, and 100–350 mg L−1 in Reigous Creek, which collects the acid mine drainage). Here, we present a survey of the archaeal community in the sediment and its temporal variation using a culture-independent… CONTINUE READING
