Discharge of uranium (U) tailings and contaminant effluents from uranium ore extraction sites creates huge burdens of anthropogenic radioactivity and greatly alters the ecosystem. Remediating the environment from these contaminations thus becomes a huge responsibility of the industry. Microbe-based bioremediation has emerged as a potential alternative to hazardous mine waste management as well as removal of toxic contaminants efficiently from the environment. In order to formulate the bioremediation strategies effectively, it is essential to understand the inhabitant microbial community structure of mine sites and their metabolic role as related to those sites. In addition, deciphering microbial communities also helps us to understand the responsible biogeochemical cycling and food web dynamics of such sites. Advancement in different techniques that includes high-throughput DNA sequencing and different “omic” tools can provide details of microbial communities and their metabolic activity in contaminated environments. The present chapter will describe both culturable and unculturable microbial diversity, dynamics within the uranium tailing pond, and radionuclide-contaminated environment and their interaction with other heavy metals including uranium.
