Corporate Member Profile:
BacTech is a pioneering environmental company that has developed and commercilized a proprietary technology to remediate highly toxic tailing areas resulting from abandoned mining operations. Bioleaching is the use of naturally-occurring bacteria in stainless steel bioreactor tanks to neutralize contaminants found in highly acidic mine waste.
The bacteria used in BacTech's patented bioleaching technology are harmless to both humans and the environment. Under optimal conditions, they oxidize the contained sulphides and separate metal from difficult-to-process tailings. In the process, toxic elements such as arsenic are stabilized. The byproducts of bioleaching are benign and zero environmental damage occurs as a result of the process. An added bonus is its ability to recover valuable metals such as gold, silver, cobalt and nickel that remain in the tailings.
For our first Canadian project in Snow Lake, Manitoba, BacTech is working with the local community and First Nations to ensure that the environmnetal and economic benefits are distributed equitably. BacTech is also currently in the process of becoming a certified B Corporation.
