USGS study of the Ducktown mining district, Tennessee (Copper Basin Superfund Site)
This project is an investigation of geochemical processes associated with
the weathering of mineral deposits and their wastes in humid climatic settings,
which are characteristic of the eastern United States.
Emphasis will be placed on the use of a variety of geochemical tracers, such as stable and radiogenic isotopes and metal ratios in various solid, liquid, and biologic media.
