The impact of irrigation conditions on the spatial development of microbial colonies in bioheaps

This thesis contributes to the bioleaching knowledge base by improved understanding of the relationships between hydrodynamics and micro-organism-ore contacting and colonisation through an integrated study of microbiological and hydrological aspects of heap bioleaching within systems that mimic actu...
