This outlines the geochemical conditions prevailing in the tailings impoundment 1 at the Kristineberg mine, Sweden. Results and interpretations are based upon pore water extractions, sequential extractions on tailings from various depths, and water extracted from the unsaturated vadose zone underneath the part covered by a compacted clayey till, acting as a sealing layer.
