Abstract (in english)
   The impact of mining in the copperbelt , ZUambia has been studied using the combination of geochemical and hydrogeochemical methods. It was concluded that the environmental impact of mining is relatively limited due to neutral character of mine discharge, but metals in sediments can be mobilized in the case of acid spills or re-suspended during rainy periods.
