Bioleaching of black shale

I am not technically a scientist but someone getting his feet wet in the area of bioleaching.  I have done wet chemistry in the past on a specific black shale but have not gotten any concrete results.  Recently, I was made aware of the relatively new process of bioleaching of black shale, so my interest was piqued.  Using what information I've been able to obtain on the internet I  have begun my own attempts at bioleaching.  However, as I am not formally trained in either chemistry or biology or biochemistry I come up with more questions than I have answers for.  So, I am hoping someone out there who has experience in or knowledge of bioleaching and is willing to coach a novice, will contact me.  I'll be more than willing to share the wealth when the project becomes profitable..    Kurt
