Role of Ferrous Ions in Synthetic Cobaltous Sulfide Leaching of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans.

Abstract

Microbiological leaching of synthetic cobaltous sulfide (CoS) was investigated with a pure strain of Thiobacillus ferroxidans. The strain could not grow on CoS-salts medium in the absence of ferrous ions (Fe). However, in CoS-salts medium supplemented with 18 mM Fe, the strain utilized both Fe and the sulfur moiety in CoS for growth, resulting in an… (More)
