Jopony, Marcus and Usup, Gires and Mohamed, Murtedza (1987) Particle Size Distribution of Copper Mine Tailings from Lohan Ranau Sabah and its Relationship with Heavy Metal Content. Pertanika, 10 (1). pp. 37-40.
Particle size analyses were carried out on copper mine tailings from Lohan, Ranau Sabah. About 99.64% of the tailing particles were < 1000 /lm in size while 52.23%,15.72% and 4.87% were < 125 j.l.m, < 62.5 pm and < 38 j.l.m/respectively. The amount of heavy metal extracted by 0.5 HCI was in the order Mn > Cu > Ni > Zn > Co > Cd and is relatively higher in the finer tailing particles.
