In order to make effective plan to provide the scientific basis for prevention and control of re-suspended dust (RD), samples of particulate sources including RD and other pollution sources of Jincheng were collected. Elements, ions and carbon in particulate sources were analyzed. Enrichment factor, potential ecological risk assessment, and chemical mass balance model were used to analyze the chemical composition and the source of RD. The result indicated that the main components in RD of Jingeheng were Si, TC, Ca, OC, Al, Mg, Na, Fe, K and SO4(2-), contributing 61.14% of total mass of RD. The most abundant content of RD was crustal elements, and the ions were enriched in the fine particles. The mass fraction of OC in PM2. was higher, whereas the mass fraction of EC in PM10 was higher, indicating that secondary organic pollutants were mainly dominated in the fine particles. The dust PM2.5 and PM10 potential ecological risk indexes were extremely strong, and PM2.5 had higher ecological harm than PM10. Pb had the highest enrichment factor of 196.97 in PM2.5, which was followed by As, Cr, Ni, V, Zn and Cu, the enrichment factors of which were all greater than 10, indicating that they were apparently enriched and affected by human activities. Soil dust, construction dust, vehicle exhaust, and coal dust were the main sources of RD.
