Soil near mining sites 'contaminated with heavy metals ...

They selected 14 samples of soil from a dam at the mining site, 13 soil samples from an area near the mine and 20 soil samples in a site relatively far from the mine. The soil samples were selected twice, each in March and in August 2006. The amounts of heavy metals in the mining site were then compared with the surrounding areas.

Heavy metal contamination in soils and food crops around ...

food crops can be an important source of heavy metals for humans and animals (Dudka and Miller 1999). Both heavy metal uptake via roots from contam-inated soils and surface water, and direct deposition of contaminants from the atmosphere onto plant surfaces can lead to plant contamination by heavy metals. Lead and Cd are considered potential ...

Analysis and assessment of heavy metals pollution in soils ...

ABSTRACTSoil heavy metal pollution from mining activities is potentially harmful to human health through the food chain. In this study, a total of 43 soil samples were collected from a depth of 0–20 cm from fields close to a Pb and Zn smelter. The samples were used to: 1) analyze the pollution level of heavy metals (Pb, Zn, Cr, and Cu) and spatial distribution pattern; 2) evaluate the degree ...
