CHARACTERISTICS OF HEAVY METAL DISTRIBUTION AT SPOIL DUMP-FIELDS OF Cu-DEPOSIT ĽUBIETOVÁ (SLOVAKIA)

Full text

Abstract:

The mechanism of heavy metal distribution in the Podlipa and Reiner spoil dump-fields of theabandoned Cu-deposit of Ľubietová is influenced by the primary content of ores and individual metals intheir substrate, geochemical properties of individual elements, their migration and sorption properties andpH/Eh values. The article presents mapping of Fe, Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni, Co, U, Th, Cd, As, Sb, Ag distributionat the studied dump-fields and study of the reasons and results of their individual migration process. Thespecific behaviour of individual metals at different localities is selective. These properties are reflectedalso by correlation relations. While at Podlipa were described correlations only among several few metalcouples (Cu/Co, Fe/Ni, Ni/As, Zn/Cd, Zn/Pb, Pb/Cd, U/Th), at Reiner dump-field is the situationsubstantially different; there were proved several times more metal pairs showing high level ofcorrelation. This result enable suggest that there were different environmental conditions influencedprimarily by different rock composition and those also different natural sorbents effecting selectivemigration mechanism at these two close localities.
