"mineral" - every spring contains minerals, the interesting point is which and how much. "sulfuric" - just a special case of "mineral" - why pick this one and not the others 

forgotten to answer this detail.. sulfuric may be a special case of mineral but the
difference is very characteristic.

I am in favor of mapping the most characteristic water properties first and possibly more
detailed chemical composition as far as known and somehow important.
