Abstract


The abandoned mine area of the High Moulouya District still represents an important resource. Main activities closely related to the abandoned mine are artisanal extraction, fossil and mineral trade, tourism, agriculture, and scientific research. The aim of this work is to investigate the geochemistry of open pits and waters flowing out of abandoned mine galleries. These waters are used by the inhabitants for agricultural purposes. The quality of those waters is moderately bad, the waters show contamination by trace and heavy metal.

Author Keywords: abandoned mine, mine water, Water quality, water geochemistry, openpits.
