Funding Information:
This work is supported by the Collaborative Research Center 1253 CAMPOS (Project 5: Fractured Aquifer), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG, Grant Agreement SFB 1253/1). NanoSIMS analysis was done at the Institute of Analytical Sciences and Physico-Chemistry for Environment and Materials (IPREM UMR 5254, CNRS/UPPA, Pau, France) with Cameca courtesy. We thank Celine Defouilloy for collecting NanoSIMS data and Dirk Schaumlöffel and Maria Angels Subirana for access to faculties at IPREM. We acknowledge Stefan Peiffer, Jutta Eckert, and Karel As for sharing protocols and practical advices for elemental sulfur measurements. Zhe Zhou is acknowledged for measurements of Mössbauer samples and help with interpretation. SEM was conducted at the Center for Light-Matter Interaction, Sensors & Analytics (LISA) with the help of Timm Bayer. We thank Ellen Röhm for the help with IC and HPLC measurements and Franziska Schädler for nitrate and nitrite analyses. +
