Abstract

The cessation of the activity in the industrial town of Zlatna allows for the approach
of a research activity focused on the monitoring of the heavy metal pollution degree of soils, as well as a pertinent analysis of soil evolution in this alternative. Pedologic and agrochemical research in the area is further more important as soils were affected in different degrees by heavy metal contamination (pollution) (Pb; Cd, Cu, Zn) and they did not benefit from any ecologic recovery method or measure.
The present paper aims at analyzing the degree of representation in total and
mobile (soluble) forms of heavy metals (Pb, Cd, Cu, Zn), after 10-12 years from the
cessation of the industrial activity
