Bio-Mine

Bio-Mine is a biomining company that provides services and conducts research into clean mine solutions, such as biological engineering and analysis of the DNA/RNA of potential bio-communities to advance clean chemistry and REDOX for the development of cleaner products for leaching and detoxification.

Bio-Mine conducts research in clean mine solutions, such as biological engineering and analysis of the DNA/RNA of potential bio-communities to advance clean chemistry and REDOX for the development of cleaner products for leaching and detoxification. The company provides solutions for mine operators wanting to lower their footprint in the processing part of their business. Bio-Mine expanded its divisions into safe chemistry and controlled REDOX reactions to compliment their research into biomining with DNA/RNA sequencing and CRISPR gene editing technology. Bio-Mine is developing custom bio-communities based on extremeophile adaptive families. The company acquired a new 7500 sq foot lab facility in 2018. Bio-Mine is developing multiple clean technologies for leaching and detoxifying. Bio-Mine has a clean recovery plant prototype planned for construction in 2019, to process minerals safely, and reduce or eliminate tailings water.

Bio-Mine Ltd and its team dissects the chemistry going on in each slurry or tailings and designs custom solutions using only low footprint products and processes to accomplish our operator partner goals whether it be pre-treatment, recovery, remediation or all 3. The company envisions a "0-footprint" mine site that will look like it did when the operator arrived. Underneath could be a highly profitable mining operation, safely processing the metals, detoxing and treating the water while pumping the leachate to the surface, leaving the rock undergound.
