Mercury concentrations and mercury isotope composition in lake sediment cores from the vicinity of a metal smelting facility in Flin Flon, Manitoba

The Flin Flon copper–zinc smelter is a site of concern as it has been the largest single source of atmosphericmercury emissions in Canada. Variations in totalmercury concentration and mercury isotopic composition were determined in three lake sediment cores at different distances from the Flin Flon smelter. The study demonstrated that mercury isotope ratio measurements could serve as an effective tool for tracing mercury contamination caused by atmospheric emissions from metal smelting activities.
