pdf  Deep zoning in concentration of heavy elements-admixtures in hydrocarbons
Distinction in composition of heavy elements-admixtures containing in hydrocarbons in depending on the depth of hydrocarbon pools is shown. Hydrocarbon pools at depths of to 3 km are frequently enriched in such admixtures of heavy metals as V, Co, Ni and others, connected with resin-asphaltenes fractions. At great depths (>4.5 km), particularly in the zones of young troughs with activated mantle, they quite often contain such the most volatile and toxic elements as Cd, Hg, As, Tn, Se, Mo and others being the products of mantle emanation. Therefore consideration must be given to their impact on the environment.

Key words: deep zoning, elements-admixtures in hydrocarbons, mantle emanation
