Thermodynamic models of Essentuki and Nagutsky fields of Caucasian Mineral Waters deposits (KMW) are developed. The models are based on laboratory studies of core samples of aptian-albian lower Cretaceous rock dissolution. The rock samples were disintegrated up to 0.25 mm grains. The rock grains were mixed with distilled or mineral waters and the mixtures were kept at 20-25°С and 65-70°С, carbon dioxide pressure of 4.04 MPa. The results of experimental and thermodynamic modeling are showed that aqueous solution composition formed, in particular, microcomponent concentrations, depends on the rock cement composition (clayey, calcic, siliceous, ferriferous, chloritic, zeolitic phosfatic, sulfatic or mixed) and on the percentage of the microelement mineral-bearing in the water-bearing rock. Also the aqueous solution composition depends on temperature and CO2 partial pressure in the silt - rain water CO2 system. Thermodynamic modeling of the system confirmed gypsum dominant role in sulfate type water formation against pyrite role.
