The presence of high amounts of sulfur in soils adjacent to the study area was reported by (Fernandez et al., 2006), and the increases of sulfate in the study area may be due to the high content of sulfuric-containg organic molecules (sulfide, disulfide, mercaptan, thiophene, benzothiophene and dibenzotione derivatives of resins and asphaltenes) (Waiquer, 2004) contained in the oil spill, which could have been released through mineralization processes.
