Abstract

Cultivated soils in mining areas are degraded by natural and anthropogenic processes. A sequential extraction procedure in soils was conducted to fractionate the arsenic (As) content along a transect with active agriculture. The distribution of As in soil showed a small percentage on the exchangeable fraction, while a major As pool could be released depending on the crop and soil management.
