Sulphur rich rocks can leach high concentrations of radionuclides and metals into the aquatic environment, when exposed to air and moisture and this might lead to uptake and negative effects in aquatic organisms. Thus during construction in areas with these types of rocks, information about possible leaching and critical levels are needed to perform risk analysis. The present work focuses on the transfer of radionuclides and metals from rock to water and further to organism.
