Researchers tracking sources of arsenic contamination in water
...ocess involved heating the ore so that the arsenic would
oxidize as a white powder," Schreiber said. The researchers have discovered that a stream adjacent to the site is receiving arsenic from groundwater that has flowed through the mine, but that some of the arsenic is being retained in the streambed. Di...
