Heavy metal resistance

I would like to determine the heavy metal resistances of several 
hydrocarbon degrading organisms. Can anyone help me out as regards 
methods/references. I'd like to look at copper and zinc in particular but 
I'm unclear as to which salts to use and how much of them I've got to 
add. I want the media to be as carbon free as possible and would like to 
run some experiments using Gelatin as the solidifying agent instead of 
agar. I know that a big problem is the complexing of the metals in the 
media. Any handy hints?

Cheers Jac
