|Abstract: ||The S. Domingos abandoned mine is a major source of pollutant-metals contamination. Slags from the
19th-20th century contain the most hazardous material. However, the release of pollutant metals depends
on the metal-retention capability of weathering products. This work shows that Zn is not effectively
retained by these weathering products while As and Pb are partially stored in sulphates. Copper, on the
other hand, has a different behaviour and is the most leachable of the elements studied.|
