Abstract

From March 1, 2005 to August 31, 2006 mineral water wells were selected for 13 areas in Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore) and 20 areas in Northeast Asia (Korea, North Korea, China, Japan) and the study on their mineral water quality was analyzed. - Mineral water quality was the best in Korea. Mineral spring waters in some area of China and North Korea and in the whole area of the Southeast Asia were of poor quality. - The hardness of mineral water was the low in Korea $(10{\sim}47mg/L\;as\;CaCO_3)$, Japan $(4{\sim}66mg/L\;as\; CaCO_3)$, Geumgang-san North Korea Area $(4mg/L\;as\;CaCO_3)$. Mineral spring water in Thailand, Indonesia $(1{\sim}97.5mg/L\;as\;CaCO_3)$ and in the other area $(120{\sim}1205mg/L\;as\;CaCO_3)$ were high degree of hardness. - pH value in the mineral water of Southeast Asia $(pH\;6.7{\sim}8.2)$ and Northeast Asia $(pH\;5.9{\sim}7.9)$ was up to WHO standard $(pH\;6.5{\sim}8.5)$. Fluorine of negative ion was found in 10 mineral waters: Indonesian mineral water 'ATARTN'(0.02mg/L), Thailand mineral water 'SIAM' (0.6mg/L), 'MASAFI' (0.02mg/L). Korean mineral water 'SAEMMULNARA' (1.1mg/L), 'SANSU'(0.6mg/L), 'ICIS'(0.3mg/L), 'DONGWON SAEM-MUL'(0.03mg/L), 'PYEONGCHANG' (0.6mg/L), North Korean mineral water 'KUMGANGSAN'(0.1mg/L), Japanese mineral water 'CRYSTAL GEYSER'(0.55mg/L). However Fluorine in the other 23 mineral waters were not detectable.
