This study investigated the behavior of rare earth elements (REEs) associated with suspended particles in deep granitic groundwater and in a sealed drift at a depth of 500 m in the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (URL) in Japan. Approximately 10%$$sim$$60% of REEs in groundwater are associated with suspended particles. Carbonate particles in groundwater are most likely derived from in situ precipitation of supersaturated carbonate minerals such as calcite. Thermodynamic calculations show that the dissolved REE carbonate complexes in the closed drift decreased in the drift closure period. These complexes may have been absorbed or co-precipitated within the shotcrete on the drift wall. The usage of cement based materials would generate environmental conditions in which REEs are fundamentally immobile in and around the underground facilities.

Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) at Tono Geoscience Center (TGC) is pursuing a geoscientific research and development project namely the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) Project in crystalline rock environment in order to construct scientific and technical basis for geological disposal of High-level Radioactive Waste (HLW). The MIU Project has three overlapping phases: Surface-based Investigation phase (Phase I), Construction phase (Phase II), and Operation phase (Phase III). The MIU Project has been ongoing the Phase III, as the Phase II was concluded for a moment with the completion of the excavation of horizontal tunnels at GL-500m level in February 2014. This report presents the results of the investigations, construction and collaboration studies in fiscal year 2014.

Hydrochemical disturbances measured in groundwater during the construction and operation of a large-scale underground facility in deep crystalline rock in Japan

Iwatsuki, Teruki; Hagiwara, Hiroki; Omori, Kazuaki; Munemoto, Takashi; Onoe, Hironori

Environmental Earth Sciences, 74(4), p.3041 - 3057, 2015/08

 Times Cited Count:13 Percentile:33.95(Environmental Sciences)

Changes of hydrochemical condition resulting from large-scale underground facility construction to 500 m depth in sedimentary and granitic rock were evaluated at the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU), Japan. The investigation of hydrochemical impact around the facility suggests that an understanding of hydrogeological structures, including hydrogeological compartments prior to facility construction and the locating of shafts/galleries in low permeability rock area is essential to minimize hydrochemical disturbances.

We evaluated the Phase I - hydrogeochemical model constructed by Surface-based investigation phase (Phase I), and observed hydrogeochemical change resulting from facility construction in Phase II research. Additionally we developed investigation technique on redox condition, colloid/organics, etc. at gallery in Phase III research. Hydrogeochemical changes in sedimentary rocks and granite resulting from facility construction have been caused by the change of mixing ratio among salinity-distinct groundwaters. Multivariate numerical analysis shows that the groundwater chemistry around drifts would change to that of shallow groundwater in the future. The know-hows on hydrochemical monitoring at the hydrogeological structures and numerical analysis were summarized to infer the hydrochemical changing processes during the facility construction.

no journal, , 

Natural analogue study on colloidal radionuclide migration was carried out by using rare earth elements (REE) in deep granitic groundwater. The analysis of REE on colloid and the chemical property indicates that the mobility of REE is affected by carbonates-colloid. While the clay-colloid and organic-colloid has less influence for REE mobility.
