Acknowledged degree project in applied geochemistry

Published: 5 September 2020

In a circular society that strives to close the cycle of resources, usage of rest material from one operation area to another plays a natural role. In operations connected to roadworks geological material are mainly handled.

– 10 rock samples have been studied with the aim to investigate and discuss prediction methods for sulfidic rock, says Lina Lindgren who studied at The Master Programme in Natural Resources Engineering at Luleå University of Technology.

Geological material can contain sulfide minerals which can through oxidation produce acid. To ensure that the material can be used in constructions different prediction methods are used to estimate risks with the material. In this master thesis prediction methods have been studied on 10 different materials, the results show that the studied prediction methods give a big variation in results.
