  • The partitioning of 12 heavy metals in sediments of the Vaal Dam system was determined by applying a sequential extraction procedure. Environmental risks associated with the potential remobilisation of these metals, the capacity of the sediment to continue functioning as a sink and the possible origin of the metals were assessed. Despite the fact that the water level was at record lows; ca, 13% in the Vaal Dam. the extractable metal content of the sediments was low indicating a relatively… CONTINUE READING
