Paper Title:
Heavy Metal Pollution of Soil around the Gangue Hill: A Case Study from Zhuxiangzhuang Coal Mine, Northern Anhui Province, China
  Abstract

Heavy metal concentrations of soils around two gangue hills from Zhuxiangzhuang coal mine, northern Anhui province, China had been determined by using X-Ray Fluorescence, and the calculation of enrich factor and index of geo-accumulation, as well as multivariate statistical analysis (including principle component analysis and cluster analysis) had been brought out to light: V, Cr, Fe, Cu and Zn of soils are unpolluted when normalize to soil environmental background value of China. However, when normalized to their minimum concentrations, Zn is light pollution. Two sources of heavy metals have been identified by using multivariate statistical analysis, including lithogenic (V and Fe) and anthropogenic (Cr, Cu and Zn). The soils from the area between two gauge hills have the highest degrees of heavy metals pollution relative to other areas, implying that the method in the Zhuxianzhuang coal mine is useful for environmental protection.
