Soil pollution problems from potential toxic heavy metals have been a serious concern nowadays due to anthropogenic activity like mining and industrial activity. Thus, the present study was aimed to assess the pollution of soil by heavy metals in abandoned coal stockpile and abandoned lime kiln by using pollution indices calculation. The results revealed that the soils are low in organic contents (N, P, K and C) in both the study sites. The heavy metal concentration in the soil of both the… CONTINUE READING
