Clay minerals and zeolites were treated with saturated NaCl brine and Mg-rich (Mg-Ca-Na-K) brine at 200 and 300oC for 4 weeks under 30 MPa P. The implications of the results to the suitability of these materials as backfill materials for nuclear waste repositories in different situations are discussed. -D.F.B.
