Mining is viewed as one of the principal economic activities that have the potential of contributing to the financial development of the country. On the other hand, the environmental and health impacts of mining on surrounding communities have been a major affair to governments, public, stakeholder, and individuals. The harsh environments are inhabited by abundant microbes that help in driving biogeochemical cycles. This article herein reviews microbial diversity in these degraded ecosystems…

Diversity of chromium‐resistant and ‐reducing bacteria in a chromium‐contaminated activated sludge
Aims: This study attempts to establish a relationship between the Cr(VI) resistance of the culturable microbial community and the Cr(VI) resistance and Cr(VI)‐reducing ability of representative
Response of microbial communities to different doses of chromate in soil microcosms
TLDR
It is concluded that the soil microbial community responds to chromate pollution through changes in community structure, in metabolic activity, and in selection for Cr(VI)-resistance.
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of bacterial community and characterization of Cr(VI) reducers from the sediments of Tantloi hot spring, India
TLDR
Most of the Tantloi Spring Bacterial sequences analyzed in different taxonomic divisions could be related to representatives with known metabolic traits which indicated presence of organisms involved in redox processes of a variety of elements including iron, sulphur and chromium.
Interactions of chromium with microorganisms and plants.
TLDR
The interactions of bacteria, algae, fungi and plants with Cr and its compounds are summarized and proposed as potential biotechnological tools for the bioremediation of Cr pollution.
