Pseudo-total (aqua-regia) levels of As and Sb in the soils varied between 50-17,400 mg kg(-1) and 10-1,200 mg kg(-1), respectively. Both elements are predominantly associated with Fe (or Al) oxides/hydroxides, by adsorption around silicate grains, representing a potentially bioavailable fraction. Antimony was also associated with sulphide phases.
