Creating a Microbial Toolbox for the Mining Industry
Dr. Lesley Warren, University of Toronto


How the application of biogeochemistry to mining impacted waters, waste impoundments, and reclamation projects is being used to develop new knowledge that will drive biologically informed tools and solutions critically needed by the industry.


Speaker: Dr. Lesley Warren

Claudette MacKay-Lassonde Chair in Mineral Engineering, Dept. of Civil and Mineral Engineering, University of Toronto


Dr. Warren is an aqueous and microbial geochemist, who has pioneered the development of integrated approaches to address key questions linked to the roles microorganisms play in geochemical cycling, with a significant focus on water quality management in mining contexts. She has an internationally recognized track record of resource sector-based integrated geochemical and microbiological investigation, and has partnered with numerous energy and mining industry leaders. She serves on the Canadian Mining Industry Research Organization (CAMIRO) Expert Geochemistry panel and Syncrude Canada’s Reclamation and End Pit Lake Science Advisory Boards.
