What Is Mundic?


Mundic is a term used from the 1690's to describe a copper ore which began to be smelted at Bristol and elsewhere in south-western Britain. Mundic was once referred to Pyrite, but has now adopted the wider meaning of concrete deterioration caused by oxidization of pyrites within the aggregate. The oxidization of pyrite forms sulphate.
