Gold mining -- Environmental aspects -- Brazil
Abstract:Arsenic enters the environment naturally though rock weathering but its concentrations can be dramatically increased by human activity such as mining. ISTC’s senior chemist, John Scott, and collaborators from the Federal University of Viçosa (Brazil), Illinois State Geological Survey, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign teamed up to find the arsenic release pathways in arsenic rich soils at gold mining sites in Brazil. Full research results available in de Mello, J.W.V., Talbott, J.L., Scott, J. et al. (2007). "Arsenic speciation in arsenic-rich Brazilian soils from gold mining sites under anaerobic incubation." Environmental Science and Pollution Research - International 14(6), 388-396.
