Cover for Impact of gold mining on mercury contamination and soil degradation in Amazonian ecosystems of French Guiana.

This chapter focuses on the impact of artisanal small-scale gold mining (ASGM) on the Hg contamination of tropical soils, with special attention on how the change in land use (i.e., gold extraction practices) alters the soil processes that affect Hg fate and behaviour. The chapter explains the soil ...
