ASSAY

Acid Sulfate Soils (ASS) contain iron sulfides (mainly pyrite) which can generate large amounts of sulfuric acid when exposed to air. New South Wales has about 600,000 hectares of acid sulfate soils along its coastline. These soils formed naturally over the last 10,000 years, and are safe until dug up or drained. Large scale drainage of coastal flood plains for flood mitigation, urban expansion and agriculture has exposed large areas of ASS. Acid leachate, plus the aluminium, iron and the heavy metals which it releases from soils, cause significant environmental and economic problems. ASSAY is a national, quarterly newsletter about current Acid Sulphate Soil issues. It is funded by the Federal Government's Natural Heritage Trust. Further Information is available from the NSW Agriculture Site (search for ASSAY):
