We examined the solubility, mineralogy and geochemical transformations of sedimentary Fe in waterways associated with coastal lowland acid sulfate soils (CLASS). The waterways contained acidic (pH 3.26-3.54), FeIII-rich (27-138 μM) surface water with low molar Cl:SO4 ratios (0.086-5.73). The surficial benthic sediments had high concentrations of oxalate-extractable Fe(III) due to schwertmannite precipitation (kinetically favoured by 28-30% of aqueous surface water Fe being present as the FeIIISO4+ species). Subsurface sediments contained abundant pore-water HCO3 (6-20 mM) and were reducing (Eh < -100 mV) with pH 6.0-6.5. The development of reducing conditions caused reductive dissolution of buried schwertmannite and goethite (formed via in situ transformation of schwertmannite). As a consequence, pore-water FeII concentrations were high (>2 mM) and were constrained by precipitation-dissolution of siderite. The near-neutral, reducing conditions also promoted SO4-reduction and the formation of acid-volatile sulfide (AVS). The results show, for the first time for CLASS-associated waterways, that sedimentary AVS consisted mainly of disordered mackinawite. In the presence of abundant pore-water FeII, precipitation-dissolution of disordered mackinawite maintained very low (i.e. <0.1 μM) S-II concentrations. Such low concentrations of S-II caused slow rates for conversion of disordered mackinawite to pyrite, thereby resulting in relatively low concentrations of pyrite (<300 μmol g-1 as Fe) compared to disordered mackinawite (up to 590 μmol g-1 as Fe). This study shows that interactions between schwertmannite, goethite, siderite, disordered mackinawite and pyrite control the geochemical behaviour of sedimentary Fe in CLASS-associated waterways.
