Abstract

The carbQnaceous .shale of Batu Gl!iah ex!Xlriencing weathering and acid rock drainage phenomenon doe to exposure to water and atmosphere during the construction of the Seputeh - Batu Gajah new road. As a result, severe soil cancer and land slide occur around the affected area. Sets of sample were collected according to the weathering profile in order to determine the change of physical and chemical properties of the carbonaceous shale before and after experiencing weathering and acid rock drainage. Several experiments such as colour chart, physical observation, X - Ray Diffiaction (XRD), X - Ray Fluorescence (XRF), Scanning Electron MicroscoJXl (SEM), CHNS elemental experiment and density calculation was carried out in order to meet the project objective. It is found that the physical and chemical properties of the carbonaceous shale change during weathering and acid rock drainage. The density gradually decreased whiles the colour of the rock which dark becomes lighter. The carbonaceous shale which initially hard becomes more brittle and porous as it weathered. The chemical properties of the carbonaceous shale such as carbon and sulphur are significantly decreases because the elements are leach out during the weathering and acid rock drainage process. As a result, the change in physical and chemical properties due to weathering and acid rock drainage are heavily affected the area which cause soil cancer and land slide. Keyword:
