Environmental geochemistry and health 40, 1495-1512 a first long-term (2 years) field experiment indicated how as and other metal(loid) contaminants can be released from as-rich copper smelter flue dust after deposition in contrasting soils.
Environmental effects of copper when copper ends up in soil it strongly attaches to organic matter and minerals as a result it does not travel very far after release and it hardly ever enters groundwater in surface water copper can travel great distances, either suspended on sludge particles or as free. 1 introduction the trace metal geochemistry of the oceans has undergone a resurgence of interest over the past decade (eg see review in scor 3 the heavy aqueous copper has an alternative explanation that is ﬁrmly based in what is already known about the geochemistry of copper draining. The concentration of copper, lead, zinc, cadmium, chromium and nickel was measured in deposit samples taken from a profile in an abandoned flotation tailing reservoir, as well as in water and sediment samples near the reservoir the results of this study indicate that copper concentration. The mamut copper mine (mcm) located in sabah (malaysia) on borneo island was the only cu-au mine that operated in the country during its operation (1975-1999), the mine produced 247 mt of concentrate containing approximately 600,000 t of cu, 45 t of au and 294 t of ag, and generated.
