Concentrations of total mercury (Hg(T)), methylmercury (MeHg), and its speciation in water samples as well as fish collected from abandoned Hg mines in Wanshan, Guizhou province, China, were measured to show regional dispersion of Hg contaminations that are not well known. High Hg(T) and MeHg(T) (total methylmercury) concentrations obtained in waters from mining areas, ranged from 15 to 9300 ng/l and 0.31 to 25 ng/l, respectively. MeHg(T) were not correlated with Hg(T), whereas, peak values in… CONTINUE READING
