Predicting the solubility and lability of Zn, Cd, and Pb in soils from a minespoil-contaminated catchment by stable isotopic exchange

Abstract

1 Introduction</h5> Soils with elevated metal concentrations from past mining activities pose risks to human and ecosystem health ( Gleyzes et al., 2002; Tongtavee et al., 2005; Igwe and Abia, 2007; Katanda et al., 2007; Lofts et al., 2007 ). Such soils also present challenges to characterization of metal solubility and reactivity because of the time-dependent action of variable soil characteristics on poorly soluble ore minerals. The chemical reactivity of metals in the solid phase of soil has been categorized as ‘inert’, ‘non-labile’ and ‘labile’ ( Degryse et al., 2009 ). Non-labile metal held within suspended sub-micron colloidal particles (SCP-metal) in filtered soil solutions has also been reported ( Lombi et al., 2003 ).
