Metal pollution of the environment as a result of
abandoned mining activities is an acute problem
nowadays. Although mineral resource extraction has
been carried out for centuries, little attention has
been given to minimise metal dispersal around these
areas coming from the indiscriminately dumped mining
wastes. As a consequence, one of the challenges
facing society today is the identification,
evaluation and remediation of these old disused
areas to protect public health and environmental
quality. These studies are heavily dependant on
observation and quantitative measurements of the
amounts and distribution of metals, leading to the
necessity of appropriate analytical methodlogies.
This book is focused on the application and
improvement of analytical existing methodologies and
the development of novel procedures that can be used
to assess the environmental effects of metal
dispersal around abandoned mining activities. The
information provided could be useful to
professionals in environmental fields, or anyone
else who may be considering utilizing analytical
methodologies for metal determination in
environmental issues.
