岩盤中のき裂の閉塞を考えることは、放射性廃棄物地層処分を考える上で有意義である。そこで本研究では、カルシウム分を含む水中環境に1ヶ月保存した岩石表面に鉱物が析出するかどうかを調べることとした。特に、カルシウムイオン濃度の異なる環境下に岩石を保存した場合、岩石表面への鉱物析出がどのように異なるかについて調べた。その結果、鉱物の析出が確認でき、その析出量は水中のカルシウムイオン濃度に依存することが分かった。また、花崗岩に比べて砂岩ではより多くの鉱物析出が起こることも示された。本研究の結果より、鉱物の析出による岩石内のき裂修復の可能性が示されたと考えられる。

Information of confining ability of rock is important for the geological disposal of radioactive wastes. To maintain or improve the confining ability of rocks, it is important to seal pores and cracks. In this study, we investigated the precipitation of minerals on the rock surface. As rock samples, we used Berea sandstone and Toki granite in this study. It was shown that precipitation occurred on the surface of rock specimens kept in calcium hydroxide solution for 1 month if the concentration was high. Specifically, if the concentration of calcium hydroxide solution was higher than 300 mg/l, the precipitation occurred obviously. After keeping rock specimens in calcium hydroxide solution, the weight of the rock samples increased and the concentration of calcium ion decreased by the precipitation. It is considered that the calcium ion in water was used for the precipitation on rock surfaces. Since the precipitation has been recognized for rock surfaces, it is possible to seal pores and cracks in rocks. Therefore, it is also possible to keep or decrease the permeability of rocks by the precipitation of calcium compounds.
