The east Jilin Province in China, Jingyu County has been explored as a potential for enriching mineral water. In order to assess the water quality and quantity, it is of crucial importance to investigate the origin of the mineral water and its flow paths. In this study, eighteen mineral springs were sampled in May and September of 2012, May and September of 2013, and May 2014 and the environment, evolvement, and reaction mechanism of mineral water formation were analysed by hydrochemical data analysis, geochemical modelling and multivariate statistical analysis. The results showed that the investigated mineral water was rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bicarbonate, chloride, sulphate, fluoride, nitrate, total iron, silicate, and strontium, and mineral water ages ranged from 11.0 to more than 61.0 years. The U-shape contours of the mineral ages indicate a local and discrete recharge. The mineral compositions of the rocks were olivine, potassium feldspar, pyroxene, albite, and anorthite and were under-saturated in the mineral water. The origin of mineral water was from the hydrolysis of basalt minerals under a neutral to slightly alkaline and CO2-rich environment. © 2015 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht

Mineral water from Changbai Mountain is the main source of drinking water, and a major component of the economy, in Jingyu County, Jilin Province, Northeast China. In this study, the hydrochemical characteristics of 18 mineral springs are examined. Mineral water samples from each of these springs were collected and analysed for major anions and cations, electrical conductivity and pH. Results showed that the ion concentrations were low, suggesting that there is minimal influence from anthropogenic activities. Silica and strontium were the dominant components of the water. The mineral water is classified as a silicate type. The type of mineral water is Ca2++Mg2+–HCO3 −. Mineral water ages ranged from 11 to 61 years, which indicate that the mineral water circulation is local. Rocks in the area mainly consist of olivine, albite, anorthite, pyroxene and potassium feldspar. Geochemical modelling showed that they are undersaturated with respect to olivine, albite, anorthite, pyroxene, fluorite and strontianite. Olivine, albite, anorthite, pyroxene and potassium feldspar dissolved in the water–rock interaction experiments. Hydrochemical elements are produced by water–rock interactions: silica is produced from olivine, albite, anorthite and pyroxene, and strontium is produced by strontianite. CO2 is beneficial for silicate and strontium formation. © 2014, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
