N2 - The production of alkali-activated materials and geopolymers from the finer fraction of tailings is being increasingly investigated, as they could be used for building and public works, or to retain heavy metals in a consolidated solid matrix. The present study proposes a Pitzer-based geochemical model to reproduce the alkaline leaching for two mine tailing samples and the polymerization reactions.
