The contamination, enrichment and source of arsenic (As) and other heavy metals in the soil and plants of famous coal mining city of central India, Korba are described. The black carbon and Fe in the surface soil was ranged from 11.4-21.7 and 12.3-39.9%. The concentration of other heavy metals i.e. manganese (Mn), lead (Pb), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), chromium (Cr), arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd) and mercury (Hg) also present in the soil above the tolerance limits.
