Other Iron Bacteria of Late September—3


October 17, 2014

The Yellow Boy story (see previous post) is not all bad, though. Some companies are addressing the problem by reclaiming the iron oxide with a process known as bioremediation  The process cleans the site and gives the company or affiliated companies a substance that they then sell as pigment for concrete pavers and other applications. . . . The boulder sitting atop the shale in this photograph is granite, a glacial erratic brought down from Thunder Bay or points north by the last glacier in this area.

  1. Excellent shot, Linda. What accounts for the unusual streight lines?

  2. It’s strange indeed, with the blocked shapes looking like they were dropped into the photo – very interesting!

    • Thanks, Lynn. Maybe some day I’ll find out what makes the shale break into shapes like these.
