  • The speciation of 10 heavy metals Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, V and Zn in Hartbeespoort Dam sediments was determined by applying a sequential extraction procedure. Environmental risks associated with the potential remobilisation probability of these metals were evaluated. The results showed that with regard to total metal content, the sediments of the Hartbeespoort Dam would compare with moderately to heavily polluted fluvial systems in Europe and North America. The observed metal… CONTINUE READING
