Author : Ali Awan*

Abstract

Mercury or also called mercury (Hg) is one of the heavy metals that is very dangerous for human life. If there is high exposure to mercury it can cause damage to cells, respiratory tract, nervous system, kidneys and eventually death. Kayeli Bay District is a sub-district in Buru Regency, where there are several Dusun and Desa that carry out traditional gold mining activities with excessive use of heavy metal mercury. This research was conducted in Kayeli Bay District by taking water and soil samples in Anahoni Hamlet (Station I), Wayasel Hamlet (Station II) and Kayeli Village (station III). In this area gold mines and rivers are flowing from the Wayapo plains which have been contaminated with mercury from bald mountain gold mining. The results showed that the highest mercury content in the soil was found in Wayasel Hamlet (station II) which was 104.04 ugl / kg, while the highest mercury content in water was in Anahoni Hamlet (station I) which was 23.4 ugl / kg with heavy pollution category. Key words: Mercury (Hg), Water, Soil, Kayeli Bay.
