The determination of the mechanisms and extent of soil mineral weathering can be challenging, and the caveats reside in 1) difficulty identifying minerals that are actually involved in weathering reactions, 2) non-stoichiometric release of cations during weathering processes due to coupled dissolution, precipitation and transformation reactions and, 3) impact of vegetation activity on elemental cycles in upper soil horizons. To better characterize mechanisms controlling mineral weathering in soils and trace the evolution of B concentration and isotope ratios during chemical weathering, quantitative mineralogical analyses were coupled to B isotopes in a group of minerals (biotite, muscovite, K-feldspar and albite). Samples were selected along an Alocrisol (Alumic Cambisol, WRB FAO) soil profile from the bedrock (at 130 cm depth) up to 20 cm depth, developed on granitic bedrock in the Breuil-Chenue forest (France). The samples consist of residual primary minerals associated with weathering secondary phases (vermiculite, kaolinite…) in varying proportions. The B isotopic compositions of the most pristine minerals span a very narrow range of values (around −31‰), whereas all secondary phases point to a much heavier value (around −16‰), regardless of mineralogy. Our results also show a mineral-dependent evolution of B concentration or isotopic composition as weathering progresses: no variation is observed during dissolution of K-feldspars; B behaves like a very mobile element in micas (biotite and muscovite), whereas it concentrates in weathered products derived from albite. However, rates of B concentrations and changes in isotopic compositions appear to be much faster than those inferred from mineralogy or major element concentrations determined by XRD and bulk chemical analyses, respectively. These results indicate that B is involved in very early weathering reactions and raises the question of its actual location in the structure of the various soil minerals as well as its pathway to solution.
