Boyle and Jonasson(11) suggested that inorganic and organic arsenic compounds with relatively high volatility, such as arsine and dimethylarsine, are likely to occur in groundwater, spring water, bogs and soil air near to arseniferous mineral deposits, particularly where bacterial activity is marked.
The interpretation placed on these findings is that volatile arsenic (perhaps arsine) occurs in soil air and weakly adsorbed on soils directly over the arseniferous mineralization.
