Bioaccumulation and uptake of antimony (Sb) were investigated in a highly contaminated stream, Bakers Creek, running adjacent to mining and processing of Sb-As ores at Hillgrove Mine, NSW, Australia. Comparisons with arsenic (As) were included owing to its co-occurrence at high concentrations. Mean metalloid creek rhizome sediment concentrations were 777 115g g-1 Sb and 60 6g g-1 As, with water concentrations at 381 23g L-1 Sb and 46 2g L-1 As. Antimony and As were significantly elevated in...[Show more]
