Sažetak
In the area covered by the "Jakuševec" waste depository, to a depth of 101 m, six lithological units were determined based on fieldwork and laboratory geologic-geophysical investigations. It was discovered that the silty-clayey units (units 1, 3 and 5) are covered by sandy-gravely (units 2 and 4) and gravely ones (unit 6), respectively. These units constitute the sediments of the Middle and Upper Pleistocene and Holocene and are separated by erosional unconformities. The Pleistocene gravels are predominantly of quartz-quartzite composition, while the Holocene ones are composed of carbonate cobbles and pebbles. In contrast, the sands exhibit a fairly uniform mineral composition throughout the column. The Pleistocene silt and clay are mostly composed of muscovite-illite and quartz, calcite and dolomite particles prevail and smectite and illite/smectite are absent. Unit 3 is characterised by the goethite content. The Pleistocene layers were formed in lacustrine-marshy environment while the Holocene sediments are fluviatile. The sedimentary sequence is interrupted by occasional terrestrial phases, or drying-up periods, dependent on the palaeoclimate conditions, particularly the interchange of cold and dry glacials with the warmer and more humid interglacial stages.
