Abstract
Scorodite is an orthorhombic iron arsenate commonly associated with arsenic-bearing ore deposits as a weathering product. This study investigated the mode of formation and persistence of scorodite in nature, and suggests that its presence controls the arsenate levels in waters draining from oxidizing arsenic-rich ores. Observations at the Brinton arsenic mine, Floyd County, Virginia, among other arsenopyrite deposits, show a close spatial relationship between arsenopyrite and scorodite. Analysis of the surface and ground waters at the brinton arsenic mine site showed that scorodite seems to control maximum dissolved arsenate levels.
