Abstract

Trace-element concentrations including Mg, Cr, Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd, and Pb are reported for six coal beds located in the Cumberland Group (Westphalian B or Lower Pennsylvanian) at the Joggins section, Nova Scotia, Canada. The coal beds were deposited on small flood plains. The higher than usual heavy-metal trace-element concentrations in the coals may have been derived in the exposed Cobequid Massif, located south of the Joggins area.
