   Environmental-geochemical mapping has revealed that stream sediments, soils and agricultural products are to various degrees affected by industrial pollution. The most important sources of contamination are seepage throuhgh tailing dams, wash-out of the fine-grained material from spoil banks, and, airborne particles from beaches of tailing impoundments, crushers and smelters. The degree of regional industrial pollution can be best evaluated using the Coefficient of the Industrial Pollution (CIP) which is expressed as a sum of the concentrations of As, Co, Cu, Hg, Pb and Zn in topsoil at the individual sampling points, divided by the median values of the same metals in topsoils of the studied region.
