From what I remember , bacteria was being used at Beaconsfield , Tasmania to recover gold . Got to be kept at the right temperature and numbers to work .

Also in N.Z. they were looking at planting cabbages on tailing dumps . The cabbages took up the gold .

Just found the short article , written in 2000, by Dr. Chris Anderson . Claims "more than a kilo of gold from a hectare of plants ".
