Bacterial consortium capable of growing and utilizing cyanide as a source of nitrogenÂ were isolated from effluent of gold mining industry. The isolation was conducted usingÂ liquid enrichment medium with potassium cyanide and glucose as nitrogen and carbonÂ source, respectively. These consortium could tolerate and were able to grow on KCN atÂ concentration of up to 1000 ppm. Bacterial consortium LP3 were also able to degradeÂ potassium cyanide and ammonium as product of the degradation. The degradation rateÂ was 9,0Î¼M per minute. The cyanide-degrading bacteria found in this consortium wereÂ identified as Bacillus, Corynebacterium, and Serratia.Keywords: potassium cyanide, nitrogen source, bacterial consortium LP3,
