industrial industrial air pollution in copper mines

Heavy metal pollution and lake acidity SpringerLink

One thousand years of mining of sulfurous ores at the Falun copper mine, central Sweden, and the resulting atmospheric emissions of metals and sulfur dioxide, gives a unique opportunity to study long-term responses to acid deposition. Copper production peaked in the 17 th century, when Falun supplied 2/3 of the world's copper production
