Petrographic observations of iron, copper and zinc sulfides in freshwater canal sediment
Sulfide minerals are known to be important hosts for metals in many freshwater and marine sediments, but little is known about their petrography, particularly in fine-grained recent freshwater sediments. In this paper the results of a Cryogenic SEM investigation of sulfidc textures in two fine-grained anaerobic canal-bed muds are reported. The technique allows direct observation of the undisrupted mineral and organic textures in the canal-bed mud. Iron sulfides occur in two forms: coatings on...[Show more]
