Abstract

The total contents of lead, arsenic, mercury, chromium, cadmium, zinc, copper, molybdenum and nickel were determined in soils collected from mining and agricultural areas around the molybdenum mine in Liaoning Province, China. The distribution, chemical fractions and ecological risks of heavy metals in soils were investigated and assessed. It was found that: the degrees of warning for all soils, both mining industry areas and agricultural areas, were serious warning. The results meant that all soils were contaminated seriously by heavy metals. The observed scheme of chemical fractions for heavy metals in soils of different sites was as follows commonly: residual>oxidable> reducible>acid soluble. The sources of heavy metals in top soils around the mine were as follows: dust fall, residue in the open air, higher background in soil-forming process, accompaniment element, automobile exhaust, wear of tires and brakes, release of heavy metals from ore tailing, the application of pesticides and irrigation with wastewater.
