 A Watershed-Scale Approach to Tracing Metal Contamination in the Environment
The source of the trace metals in the sediments is readily shown to be from the Penn Mine by the close tracking of the primary ore metals, copper and zinc, with the distribution of lead as a function of distance downstream from the Penn Mine.
This conclusion is supported by the fact that the Pb-isotopic compositions measured in the metal-contaminated sediments lie on a mixing line between the Pb-isotopic composition of the unmineralized sediments and the ores from the Penn Mine (Church et al., 1997).
Approximately 95 percent of the labile lead in the sediments of the Arkansas River 50 km downstream from Leadville, Colorado was derived from the Leadville mining district (Church et al., 1994).
