Abstract

Based on obtained results it can be concluded that PM10 samples contained several aluminosilicate phases, including illite, plagioclase, quartz, and possibly amphibole/pyroxene and chlorite. Other phases observed were calcite, gypsum, iron oxides/hydroxides, chromite, silver minerals, and metallic phases. Minor nickel was found associated with metal oxides and stainless steel. No indication of fibrous materials Particles such as illite, plagioclase, quartz, amphibole/pyroxene, chlorite, calcite and gypsum are mainly from natural origin, while iron oxides/hydroxides, chromite, silver minerals and nickel come from human activities such as industrial processes, especially the ferronickel smelter plant which is situated in this area.
