A field treatability study of an innovative biological treatment technology for cyanide destruction and metals immobilization from an aqueous mine process stream was held at the Echo Bay/McCoy Cove mine site in Nevada. The Aqueous Biocyanide Process, developed and operated by Pintail Systems, Inc. of Aurora, Colorado, biologically detoxifies cyanide and immobilizes heavy metals from contaminated waste streams. Pintail Systems, Inc.'s process utilizes a specially selected and augmented consortium of microorganisms immobilized on a fixed media isolite. The isolite is loaded into bioreactors which can be controlled to provide specific environments for microbial degradation and immobilization pathways. A mine pregnant solution (effluent from heap leaching operations) with high cyanide and metals concentrations was used for this demonstration.
