The Big River ( km 2) drains the Old Lead Belt mining district (OLB), which covers km 2 of St. Francois County in southeastern Missouri with its center about km south of St. Louis (Fig. 1, Fig. 2).The OLB was a leading producer of Pb worldwide from toranking first in USA production for all years except one since (Buckley,Minerals Yearbook, ).Cited by:   Hydrochemical types of karst groundwater in Chongqing were mainly of the Ca-HCO3 type or Ca(Mg)-HCO3 type.

For cations, the Ca 2+ concentrations are in the range of to mg/L, averaging at ± mg/L for Group A, and to mg/L, averaging at ± mg/L for Group B. Sediment-hosted Pb-Zn deposits contain the world’s greatest lead and zinc resources and dominate worldproduction of these metals.

They are a diverse group of ore deposits hosted by a wide variety of carbonate andsiliciclastic rocks that have no obvious genetic association with igneous activity. The Old Huanghe delta is the ninth superlobe of the Huanghe (Yellow River) delta (Xue,Saito et al., ), formed between and when the Huanghe emptied into the South Yellow Sea (SYS) (Fig.

Most of the water being supplied to residential homes in Missouri is low in lead. Even water coming from wells in the lead belt is usually low in lead.

Metal concentrations in sediment and in pore water indicated high risks of sediment toxicity in the Big River. Lead (Pb) concentrations in sediments and centrifuged pore water exceeded toxicity thresholds (sediment PECs and water quality criteria for pore water) throughout the entire reach of the Big River downstream of mining areas.

The Big River drains the “Old Lead Belt”, which is an historic mining subdistrict within the current Southeast Missouri Lead Mining District (district).

Recent studies have shown that Big River sediments are contaminated with high levels of heavy metals (e.g. lead, zinc, and cadmium) from mineral mining in the upper portion ofFile Size: 24KB. in streams draining Missouri lead-mining areas are poorly documented. In some areas, notably in the Big River downstream of the Old Lead Belt, erosion of mine tailings into stream channels has resulted in degradation of physical habitats in addition to contamination with toxic metals (Schmitt and Finger, ).

sediment loads and hydrologic regimes. The watershed-scale inputs of gravel and silty sediment were deposited on floodplains and in localized disturbance reaches (Jacobson, ). Moreover, the Big River is contaminated with mining sediment from historical lead and zinc mining operations.

Thus, channel disturbances are of geomorphic concern. Buy Sediment Transport in the Lower Missouri and the Central Mississippi Rivers, June 26 Through Septem (Floods in the Upper Mississippi River Basin,I) on FREE SHIPPING on qualified ordersAuthor: Robert R.

The Site resides within the Old Lead Belt, which is on the northeastern edge of the Precambrian igneous core ofthe St. Francois Mountains. This area is one of the world's largest lead mining districts, having produced more than nine million tons of pig lead.

Lead and zinc were mined in the Tri-State Mining District (TSMD) of southwest Missouri, northeast Oklahoma, and southeast Kansas for more than years. The effects of mining on the landscape are still evident, nearly 50 years after the last mine ceased operation. The legacies of mining are the mine waste and discharge of groundwater from underground : D.
