The mobility and bioavailability of As and Sb in relation to soil-biota transfer were evaluated at a former Sb mining and smelting site (Glendinning, SW Scotland, UK). The study specifically assessed the accumulation of As and Sb in different environmental components (soil, plants and earthworms) across mining area to estimate risk factors for the biota. Total concentrations and fractions of As and Sb in soils were determined. The latter using both a single solute and a non-specific stepwise… 

Distribution and mobility of arsenic and antimony at mine sites in FYR Macedonia.

Soils, river sediments and waters from former As-Sb mining sites in FYR Macedonia have been chemically analysed to assess their impact on the local environment. Soils and river sediments contain very

Geogenic and anthropogenic interactions at a former Sb mine: environmental impacts of As and Sb

The concentration, distribution and fate of arsenic (As) and antimony (Sb) were studied at the former metalliferous Louisa Mine at Glendinning, Scotland, and the unaltered As-to-Sb ratio in water samples suggests a geogenic source.

Linkage between solid-phase apportionment and bioaccessible arsenic, chromium and lead in soil from Glasgow, Scotland, UK

ABSTRACT The chemical composition of soil from the Glasgow (UK) urban area was used to identify the controls on the availability of potentially harmful elements (PHEs) in soil to humans. Total and

Metalloid Attenuation from Runoff Waters at an Historic Orogenic Gold Mine, New Zealand

The metalloids arsenic and antimony are mobilised through the decomposition of arsenopyrite, pyrite, and stibnite at the historic Big River Mine. Their content in the solid substrates reach levels up



Chemical availability of arsenic and antimony in industrial soils

Total concentrations and extractable fractionations of As and Sb were determined in soil samples from former mining sites in Scotland and Italy. Pseudo-total levels of As and Sb in the sample were

Antimony bioavailability in mine soils.

Bioavailability of arsenic in soil and mine wastes of the Tamar valley, SW England

ABSTRACTThe southern part of the Tamar valley area in SW England is highly mineralised and mines in the region were the world's principal producers of tin, copper and arsenic during the mid

Mobility of antimony in soil and its availability to plants.

Determination of chemical form of antimony in contaminated soil around a smelter using X-ray absorption fine structure.

The similarity of extended XAFS (EXAFS) spectra suggests that Sb speciation was independent of the sampling site, which indicates that S b or Sb2O3 emitted from the smelter was converted into Sb(V) compounds in the soil.

Biomonitoring of antimony in environmental matrices from terrestrial and limnic ecosystems.

Concentrations of Sb in elder leaves were closely associated with car traffic, giving maximum concentrations of 589 ng g-1 directly beside a motorway, 207 ngG-1 50 m from the motorway and 153 ng G-1 in a close residential area.
