Sažetak
Background and Purpose: This paper deals with the results of the investigation of the selected heavy metal contents in forest soil in the region of an abandoned mine. The analysis of the forest ecosystem soil on the Medvednica Mountain was conducted in the region of the so-called “French Mines”(FM). The elements selected for analyses were cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu), lead (Pb), and zinc (Zn) because of their toxicological characteristics. Material and Methods: In the investigated area - five entrances of the FM - composite topsoil samples (0–5 cm) were taken. Those samples were compared to the control samples which were taken outside the area affected by mines. The soil samples were analysed for the following parameters: pH, particle size distribution, organic C content and pseudo-total mass fractions of the selected heavy metals. The heavy metals were determined by atomic emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-MS). Results and Conclusion: The results reveal that the soil is locally polluted, i.e. the highest mass fraction values of these four heavy metals were found in the area of the FM. Average pseudo-total fraction of Cd in the analysed topsoil samples was in the range of 0.17–4.41 mg∙kg−1 (median: 0.97 mg∙kg−1). Cu was found in the range of 4.54–1260 mg∙kg−1 (median: 45.7 mg∙kg−1). In the case of Zn, mass fraction values were found in the range of 36.8–865 mg∙kg−1 (median: 137 mg∙kg−1). Finally, average values of the pseudo-total fraction of Pb were found in the range of 58.4–12000 mg∙kg−1 (median: 238 mg∙kg−1). The results reveal that mining activities leave consequences on soil for a long time.
