assessing cyanide and heavy metals crops in mining areas

  • Assessing heavy metal sources in agricultural soils of an

    Results indicated that heavy metal levels were similar to those reported by authors working on agricultural soils from other parts of the Mediterranean region, with the exception of Cu and Pb in some samples. Multivariate analysis (principal component analysis and cluster analysis) was performed to identify a common source for heavy metals.
