Introduction
Phytomining
Promoted as an environmentally conscious method for cleaning up contaminated mining sites, phytoremediation consists of planting hyperaccumulators (plants with the ability to extract metalsfrom the soil and concentrate them in stems, shoots and leaves) on mine wastes. Once plants aremature, they are harvested and burned. The metallic ash is processed to produce usable metals, andthe concentrations of toxic elements in the contaminated soils eventually decrease.
 Alyssum murale
(Brassicaceae), a native of eastern European serpentine soils, is one of the most studied of thesehyperaccumulator plants (Figure 1).This perennial, yellow-floweredmustard has been used successfully inseveral locations in Canada to reducetoxic levels of nickel from mine waste,while also providing a source of ore for a nearby smelter (Strauss 2002).In the late 1990’s, the proposed uses of 
 Alyssum murale
were expanded toinclude not only phytoremediation(decontamination of mine wastes), but phytomining, the removal of metalsfrom naturally occurring mineral soils.Oregon State University ExtensionService evaluated use of this plant as anew farm crop in 2002, and indicatedthat neither
