Heavy metal contamination of an island ecosystem: Misima Island, Papua New Guinea


Heavy metal contamination of an island ecosystem: Misima Island, Papua New Guinea



Science in New Guinea 21(2): 73-88



The concentration of trace metals in sediments, water, shore crabs and reef fish was measured in samples collected from an area affected by open pit gold and silver mining and waste rock disposal on Misima Island, Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea. Values of Mn, Zn, Pb, Cu, Cd and Ag in sediments are clearly elevated in comparison with non-contaminated material from other Papua New Guinea localities.
