organisms responsible for bacterial mediated acidic mine drainage. Twenty two antibiotics (obtained from Lilly and Co.) and two antibacterial substances were added to bacterial culture ATCC 19859 grown in 9K medium.

Appropriate controls were maintained. Inhibition of iron oxidizing bacteria was recorded in terms of changes in Eh of the medium treated with the compound.
