Summary:Zn and other heavy metals are scavenged from waters of the Conwy river, N Wales, by oxides of Fe and Mn which precipitate from solutions mobilized within acid reducing soils. There is no large-scale removal of dissolved Zn during the mixing of river- water and sea-water in the estuary. Zn is precipitated with Fe as an insoluble sulphide in anoxic estuarine sediments, but is remobilized from sediments during diagenesis. [R.A.H.]
