Contamination of water bodies by inorganic mercury (Hg[II]) used in placer mining of gold deposits in the Madre de Dios Department, Peru, contributes to the bioaccumulation of methylmercury (MeHg) in fish tissue. We measured MeHg and total Hg (THg) concentrations (mg/kg wet weight [ww] tissue) of thirteen fish species from the Tambopata River, Peru, and the connected oxbow lake Tres Chimbadas.

[PDF] MERCURY ACCUMULATION IN GOLD MINE TAILING

Small scale gold mining provides an important source of income for miners in rural communities whereeconomic alternatives are extremely limited. However, it releases mercury which damages the environmentand poses risks to those in the nearby community. Phytoremediation is considered as a simple and costeffective method for the cleanup of heavy metal from contaminated soil.
