Title: Organic matter of technogenic soils and substrates on the dumps of sulfidic mine rock (carbonaceous shale) in Western Donets Basin

Abstract

Data on the total carbon content and on the composition of humic substances extracted from the technogenic soils and substrates of dumped mine rocks are analyzed. It is shown that two types of humic substances are formed upon the oxidation of sulfidic rocks and their overgrowing with vegetation. The first type is represented by humic substances originating in the course of transformation of plant remains. The second type includes humic substances formed due to the oxidation of coal particles; these humic substances are characterized by a higher C{sub ha}/C{sub fa} ratio. The role of humic acids in decreasing the mobility of aluminum ions in the strongly acid mine substrate is experimentally confirmed.
