Arsenic - National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences

Jul 01, 2014  Arsenic is a naturally occurring element that is widely distributed in the Earth’s crust. It is found in water, air, food, and soil. There are two general forms of arsenic: Scientists, pediatricians, and public health advocates are increasingly concerned about the more subtle and long-range health effects of low-level exposures to humans ...

Arsenic occurs in pure form only in small deposits. It occurs in many minerals, and usually is obtained as a by-product from the mining, processing and refining of other minerals. Common arsenic-bearing minerals include arsenopyrite, conichalcite, enargite, lollingite (iron arsenide), olivenite and orpiment.

Oct 29, 2014  Mineral dissolution plays an essential role in controlling geogenic arsenic (As) contamination in groundwater. Although reductive dissolution of Fe oxyhydroxides is generally considered a key As release mechanism in many aquifers, some recent studies argue that silicate minerals, normally considered “inert” in As release, are the primary source of As contamination under certain conditions.
