Abstract

The article presents the results of the assessment of the state of soils in 2014-2018, in the area ofthe «Caspian Cement» plant at the Shetpe Yuzhnoye chalk Deposit. In General, the monitoring period,more than 80 soil samples were taken from depths of 0-20 cm. Heavy metals in soil by atomic absorption spectrometry with plasma atomization using AAS MGA-915 were compared with the available MPCnorms. At PP-2, the presence of cadmium is 2.02 MPC and 2.05 MPC, in 2017 and 2018, respectively.Arsenic MPC exceeded 1.3-2.7 MPC in 2016, 2017 and 2018. The maximum concentration factor ofheavy metals was set for cadmium and lead KK (Cd) = 4.2, KK (Pb) = 4.02 at PP-2 (road to quarry),while at PP-1 (on site) the KK (Cd) = 3.5 was lower, but for chromium KK (Cr) = 3.2. Soil pollution isinsignificant, excessive concentrations of studied metals not more than 3 MPC, however, the concentrations of QC (Cd, Pb, Cr) and the technogenic coefficient CT (Ni) of Nickel on PP-1 (4.0) and PP-2 (3,4)is high, the organization of continuous ecological monitoring of soils is necessary.Key words: сhalk deposit, soils, heavy metals, environmental assessment.
