Collaborative research leads to new method of protecting water affected by mining activities
Enviromin’s owner, Lisa Kirk, PhD, said her passion is applying the new technology even more widely. “If we can promote these biological methods of treating mine-affected water for other mining operations, we have an opportunity to change the face of mining,” she said. “I think that’s really exciting.”
Gratitude…Enviromin Volunteers at Fork & Spoon!
