Abstract. Any site selection process for a final repository for high-level and heat producing radioactive waste is a national challenge and has to take into account, among others, regional geological settings. In Germany, the site selection has to restart from zero, and all potential host rocks have to be considered equal, including argillaceous rocks. Therefore, the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) performs appropriate experiments in the Swiss Mont Terri rock labora...

Abstract Tailings deposits may host a significant amount of valuable elements and are of great interest as exploration targets for secondary mining. However, elements are distributed heterogeneously within an impoundment due to physical and chemical processes during and after deposition. Therefore, the complex internal structure has to be considered for representative sampling, estimation of ore grade and to prevent dilution of metals by bulk mining. This study shows that a multidisciplinary app...

Abstract Claystones are considered as a geological barrier. However, the properties of claystone may be modified if these are cut by brittle faults and fractures. Investigations of fault rocks are therefore crucial to evaluate the barrier properties of clay rich formations. The present study is dealing with the characterization of naturally and artificially deformed Opalinus Clay of the Mont Terri rock laboratory in NW Switzerland. Complete core sections, covering the artificially excavation dam...

Abstract One of the most vigorously discussed issues related to Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in the public and scientific community is the development of adequate monitoring strategies. Geological monitoring is mostly related to large scale migration of the injected CO 2 in the storage formations. However, public interest (or fear as that) is more related to massive CO 2 discharge at the surface and possible affects on human health and the environment. Public acceptance of CO 2 sequestration...
