Australian and Canadian scientists have discovered a way to transform Toxic Mine Waste, known as 'tailings', into fertile soil capable of supporting crops. Traditionally, tailings are hazardous and stored to prevent environmental pollution. However, researchers from the University of Queensland and the University of Saskatchewan have successfully reintroduced microbial organisms into the tailings, converting them into nutrient-rich soil. This breakthrough not only saves money on storage fees but also mitigates the risk of environmental disasters. The process also has the potential to rejuvenate damaged soils and provide sustainable solutions for mine waste.
