Using extended x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy, the research team was able to identify that the arsenic was contained in the mineral scorodite, an iron arsenate.
Among them, the scorodite process has been widely accepted as currently the most suitable method for stabilization of arsenic in terms of its high arsenic content, low TCLP arsenic solubility and environmental stability, if disposed appropriately.
Antimony metal or value added antimony products could also be produced, with arsenic being precipitated and stabilized as scorodite or ferrihydrite.
The quartz veins hosting this mineralization are commonly banded with scorodite and arsenopyrite and range in width from 10 to 30 centimeters.
