The total concentrations combined with the chemical speciation of thallium (Tl) were examined in order to track the distribution of natural and anthropogenic Tl in the soils in an industrial pyrite slag disposing area. Their geochemical behaviors in the soils were further discussed. Soil samples were collected from three soil profiles adjacent to a large open-disposed pile of industrial Tl-rich pyrite slag, and from one soil profile in the background area. The results show that the soil… CONTINUE READING
