ConclusionsThallium is present in the effluents of the base-metal mining industry, and its acute toxicity to juvenile Atlantic salmon is approximately equal to that of copper. The usual treatment of waste water with alkali to remove heavy metals by precipitation has little effect on thallium. The limited use of thallium will not lead to a global contamination of the environment, but localized problems may exist or develop in the future, mainly as a result of mineral processing.

Presence of thallium in the environment: sources of contaminations, distribution and monitoring methods
TLDR
The main aim of this review was to summarize the recent data regarding the actual level ofThallium content in environmental niches and to elucidate the most significant sources of thallium in the environment.
The Oxidative Precipitation of Thallium at Alkaline pH for Treatment of Mining Influenced Water
Thallium (Tl) may exceed regulatory limits in mining-influenced water (MIW) associated with processing cadmium, copper, gold, lead, and zinc ores. It is a toxic metal that is soluble over a wide pH
Thallium movement in a simple aquatic ecosystem
Abstract Very little is known about the behavior of thallium in an aquatic system. Because of its toxicity and pollution potential, a greater understanding of thallium transport pathways in aquatic
Thallium Contamination of Water in Canada
Thallium is highly toxic but has been an obscure element compared to its three popular neighbours, lead, mercury and cadmium. It is partly due to the scarcity of its analytical data, caused by its

Accumulation of Zinc-65 by Flounder of the Genus Paralichthys
TLDR
Results of experiments reported indicate that the transfer of zinc-65 through the food chain is a more important pathway of accumulation for fish than direct accumulation from water.
Lethal Concentrations of Copper and Zinc for Young Atlantic Salmon
TLDR
Results fitted the hypothesis that dissolved zinc was toxic, but not suspended zinc, and fish died twice as fast as would occur if the 2 metals were simply additive in their lethal action.
Acute and Long-Term Accumulation of Copper by the Brown Bullhead, Ictalurus nebulosus
TLDR
Exposure of fish to sublethal concentrations for 20 days before exposure to lethal concentrations resulted in higher tissue levels in the dead fish than in fish not previously exposed, with a distinct increase in liver and gill tissue copper concentrations occurred at exposure levels of 27 μg/liter and above.
INFLUENCE OF LEAD AND THE METALLIC IONS OF COPPER, ZINC, THORIUM, BERYLLIUM AND THALLIUM ON THE GERMINATION OF FROGS‘ SPAWN AND ON THE GROWTH OF TADPOLES
TLDR
Lead has a selective affinity for the chorion epithelium and that abortion can be produced by the action of lead on the foetal ectoderm (trophoblast) without the maternal organism being in any way affected.
An Autopsy Technique for Zinc-caused Fish Mortality
TLDR
There is almost no overlap between the gill/bone ratios of normal fish from the field and experimental fish killed by zinc exposure, and a reasonably constant value is obtained for nonlethal exposures and for fish collected in the field.
A METHOD FOR DETECTING CADMIUM POISONING IN FISH
TLDR
Subacute exposures of bluegills (Lepomis macrochirus) to cadmium sulfate dissolved in water were made at sublethal concentrations for periods up to 90 days, and data suggest that acute Cadmium poisoning can be detected by measuring cadMium in the gill tissue.
