Arsenic Found in Goldfield’s Region

As per reports, it has been revealed that the historic waste of gold mining has increased the arsenic level in soil of the central Victoria's Goldfields region. The rise has become a probable threat of cancer among people living in the region.

Dr. Dora Pearce has investigated the case and has found that the rise in arsenic level in the soil has become a major threat for children living in the region as they are the ones, who are exposed to soil while playing. In addition, people who live near to the debris are also at greater risk to develop problem related to arsenic.

Pearce said that it is a gradual deposition, which happened after 1984 as before that no cancer cases due to arsenic was found. In order to confirm the issue, she read a paper published in the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology.

The best way to solve the problem would be that the government should conduct the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology test, so that they are able to know the actual level.

"Because arsenic is naturally occurring where gold mineralization occurs, when people mine they bring up the gold ore containing arsenic and it is concentrated in large dumps of waste", said Pearce.
