Petrographic observations of iron, copper and zinc sulfides in freshwater canal sediment

Large, D J; Fortey, N; Milodowski, A; Christy, Andrew; Dodd, J


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]
