  • In this study, four sites (Sites A, B, C and D, which were associated with varying durations of zinc smelting) namely two slag piles (Profile1, Profile 2) at Sites B and C and two water channels at Sites A and D in Hezhang County, Guizhou Province, Southwestern China, were investigated.Significantly elevated mean Pb, Zn and Cd concentrations, 11,192 (±8,991), 20,563 (±16,727) and 137 (±112) mg kg−1 in slag Profile 1(n=10), and 12,535(±4,408), 26,189 (±6,209) and 47.9 (±30.1) mg kg−1 in slag… CONTINUE READING
