  • Abstract In order to assess the risk of adverse health effects on human exposure to arsenic (As) influenced by past mining activities an environmental geochemical survey was undertaken in the abandoned Myungbong gold–silver (Au–Ag) mine area. Elevated levels of As were found in tailings from the studied mine area. This high concentrations may impact on agricultural soils and waters around the tailing piles. The resulting human health risks to farmers who inhabit the surrounding areas due to… CONTINUE READING
