The average concentrations of As, Cd, Cr, Hg, Ni and Pb in residential soil and drinking water obtained from springs and wells in Rosia Montana area.

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The average concentrations of As, Cd, Cr, Hg, Ni and Pb in n=84 residential soil samples, in Rosia Montana area, analyzed by X-ray fluorescence spectrometry are given along with the standard deviations. The metal concentrations of mine pit soil (n=7) provided by Rosia Montana Gold Corporation are also given. The data are compared with the Romanian regulatory exposure levels (Alert threshold (AT) and Intervention threshold (IT)) for residential soil. The average concentrations of As, Cd, Cr, Hg, Ni and Pb in n=10 drinking water samples collected from springs and wells in Rosia Montana area, analyzed by atomic absorption spectrometry with hydride generation (for As), graphite furnace (for Pb, Cd, Cr, Ni), cold vapors hydride generation (for Hg) are given along with the standard deviations. The secondary data of metal concentrations of the stream waters in Rosia Montana area from 2005-2008, obtained from Rosia Montana Gold Corporation (RMGC) Environmental Impact Assessment Study - water Baseline report, 2007 and Rosia Montana Gold Corporation (RMGC) Environmental Impact Assessment Study - Surface water quality, 2007 are also available. The Romanian regulatory exposure levels for metals in drinking water are given for comparison purposes. The distribution of metal concentrations in residential soils around the Rosia Montana area are given along with the distances from the mine pit.
