Abstract: Study on selected ex-mining ponds surrounding Malim Nawar area in Perak showed that these ponds are highly potential to be developed for economics return especially for recreational and other aquatic activities. The existence of some heavy metals, except for Cadmium does not hinder such activities. Generally these water bodies are considerably at higher quality and within the permissible limit referring to the Standard B of Environmental quality act 1974, without taking into account the existence of Cadmium. Referring to Interim National fJilter Quality Standards for Malaysia, the water quality of ex-mining ponds within the study area are in Class I to Class III categories. Without the requirement for tedious water treatment, these ponds could be utilized for recreational and other aquatic activities such as Floating Crop Farming andfish farming (based on selected species).
