Research on the behaviour of microorganisms in geogenic or anthropogenic metallomorphic environments is an integral part of geomicrobiology. The investigation of microbial impact on the fate of minerals and geologically significant compounds of mining areas can lead to an understanding of biogeochemical cycles. Metabolic processes of microorganisms are the cause for the dissolution of minerals, and especially pyrite oxidation results in the generation of acid mine drainage which, in turn, leads to heavy metal contamination as a result of mining activities. On the other hand, microbial metabolism can also contribute to the formation of certain ore deposits over geological time.
