Mercury contamination of active channel sediment and ...

2007-8-9  The average rate of floodplain sedimentation since mining began at Gold Hill is 1.7 cm/year at the near channel core and 1.0 cm/year at the distal core, producing an overall average of 1.3 cm/year (Table 4). The highest rates of more than 2 cm/year occurred immediately following the opening of the mines until the 1856 peak in production.

Modeling the effects of land cover change on sediment ...

2019-6-1  Worldwide, artisanal gold mining is an important economic activity, accounting for about 15 million miners in at least 70 countries, especially in Africa, Asia, and South America (Telmer and Veiga 2009).However, besides releasing mercury and cyanide to the environment and disturbing soil and aquatic systems, such activity also impacts land cover and sediment yield.

Floodplain storage of sediment contaminated by mercury

We used vertical changes in overbank metal concentrations and the mining history to estimate a mean sedimentation rate of 2.7 cm y − 1 during the most intensive period of Au mining at Gold Hill (1842–1856) that is three times the long-term (1842–2007) rate of 0.9 cm y − 1. Long-term average rates at Gold Hill are comparable to those ...

Sedimentation in epithermal veins of the Bohemia

2002-5-25  The Bohemia mining district is located in the Cascade Range (Fig. 1), 70 kilometers southeast of Eugene, Oregon. Gold was first discovered in the Bohemia district in 1858 and most of the mining activity occurred in the period from 1892 to 1942, when government orders brought a halt to all gold mining. After 1945 sporadic mining occurred until 1957.
