Abstract

The origin of the high heavy metal content in the soils near Lake Vörös on Aggtelek-Karst (NE Hungary) was studied by detailed examination of the elemental composition and distribution in a depth profile of the soil formed on slope sediments of red clay redzina. This work was focused on Cu, Zn and Pb contents because these elements can indicate supposed hydrothermal ore formation processes in this area. For examining the spatial distribution of Cu, Zn and Pb in the studied area we have extended our research further 13 soil samples. In addition, the elemental composition of limestone bedrock of the soils was also investigated. Our results show both natural and anthropogenic influence on heavy metal content in soils. However the results do not undoubtedly confirm the same geochemical origin of the studied elements.
