Abstract
A regional survey in stream sediment geochemistry indicates that downstream areas from coal mines or coal related land uses can contain four times the median value of several elements, specifically cadmium cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, nickel and zinc. In those parts of a mine-impacted stream where low pH is maintained, metals can be leached from the stream sediment to further increase the concentrations in water. This phenomenon is significant to watershed managers and potential downstream water users in that they can begin to analyze their water quality problems.
