English term or phrase: flush sample
However, both samples produced acidic leachate in the first week (initial leachate pH values were 4.00 and 4.56), and pH was stable or decreasing in the second week, suggesting that additional acidity was being produced during the test. The samples had notably high sulphate concentrations (261 mg/L and 166 mg/L), and detectable metal cation concentrations (e.g., aluminium = 23.4 mg/L and 2.9 mg/L, cadmium = 0.2 mg/L and 0.03 mg/L, copper = 49 mg/L and 94 mg/L, lead = 0.05 mg/L and 0.01 mg/L, manganese = 1.3 mg/L and 0.387 mg/L, and zinc = 11.4 mg/L and 4.1 mg/L). Iron concentration in the initial *** flush samples *** (6.4 mg/L and 1.5 mg/L) was lower than typically observed in acidic mine water.
