The purpose of this study was to accumulation of the heavy metals by riparian vegetation
throughout analysis of the heavy metal concentration in riparian vegetation, water, and
sediment near mine drainage. According to analyzing concentration of the heavy metals in
riparian vegetation, water, and sediment, the heavy metal was indicated at the leaf significantly.
Compared with the concentration of sediment soil, the maximum concentration of the As, Cd,
CN, Pb, Zn was higher 2.6, 2.6, 2.5, non-detect, and 1.5 times in leaf. Also those concentration
have 9.6, 16.6, 2.5, 1.6, and 2.5 times in root. As the results, the author can know the sediment
has a very relative to vegetation in mine drainage. because, the increasing of concentration of
heavy metal in sediment gives the more accumulative concentration of heavy metal in
vegetation. Compared with the concentration of conta minated site and non-contaminated site.
As, Cd, CN, Pb, Zn the maximum concentration in sediment soil was higher 5.7, 258.1, 10.9,
370.0, and 298.3 times respectively. In case of vegetation, the maximum concentration of the As,
Cd, CN, Pb, Zn was higher 5.6, 62.3, 5.0, non-detect, and 30.6 times in leaf. Also those
concentration have 8.5, 63.3, 2.6, 60.7, and 62.1 times in root. In this study, the author can
surmise that there indicated a lot of adsorption with the heavy metal concentration in contaminated mine drainage.
