Paper Title:
Environmental Problems Related to Tunnel Constructions in Sulfide-Bearing Rocks
  Abstract

Although it is generally right that tunnel and underground structures are environment favorable, the practical situation strongly depends on the geochemical features of the rock mass to be excavated. When a tunnel is built in sulfide-bearing rocks, it is analogical to the environmental impact related to mining activities. This paper presents the features of the environmental problems related to tunnel construction in sulfide-bearing rocks and the measures to cope with the problems. It is shown that more effective options are available earlier in the tunnel life, especially at the stages of feasibility and design of a tunnel project.
