What is claimed is:

1. A method of cementing, comprising:

providing a geopolymer cement composition comprising:

a monophase amorphous hydraulic binder material (MAHBM),

a metal silicate,

an alkaline activator, and

a carrier fluid,

wherein the MAHBM comprises silica or alumina core particulates coated with an amorphous calcium silicate hydrate;

introducing the geopolymer cement composition into a subterranean formation; and allowing the geopolymer cement composition to set in the subterranean formation.

2. The method of claim 1, wherein the MAHBM comprises crystalline silica core particulates coated with amorphous a-dicalcium silicate hydrate, and the MAHBM is present in an amount of about 5% to about 70% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

3. The method of claim 1, wherein the metal silicate comprises one or more of sodium silicate, sodium metasilicate, magnesium silicate, or potassium silicate, and the metal silicate is present in an amount of about 1% to about 80% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

4. The method of claim 1, wherein the alkaline activator comprises one or more of a metal hydroxide, ammonium hydroxide, sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate, lime, caustic soda, Portland cement, or hydrated lime, and the alkaline activator is present in an amount of about 1% to about 40% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

5. The method of claim 1, wherein the carrier fluid comprises one or more of freshwater, saltwater, brine, or seawater, and the carrier fluid is present in an amount of about 20% to about 95% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

6. The method of claim 1, wherein the metal silicate comprises sodium silicate, the alkaline activator comprises a metal hydroxide, and the carrier fluid comprises water.

7. The method of claim 1, wherein the geopolymer cement composition further comprises one or more of a fluid loss control additive, a set retarder, or a set accelerator.

8. The method of claim 1, wherein introducing the geopolymer cement composition into the subterranean formation comprises introducing the geopolymer cement composition into a wellbore annulus.

9. A method of cementing, comprising:

providing a geopolymer cement composition comprising:

a monophase amorphous hydraulic binder material (MAHBM),

an aluminosilicate,

a metal silicate,

an alkaline activator, and

a carrier fluid,

wherein the MAHBM comprises silica or alumina core particulates coated with an amorphous calcium silicate hydrate;

introducing the geopolymer cement composition into a subterranean formation; and allowing the geopolymer cement composition to set in the subterranean formation.

10. The method of claim 9, wherein the MAHBM comprises crystalline silica core particulates coated with amorphous a-dicalcium silicate hydrate, and the MAHBM is present in an amount of about 5% to about 70% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

11. The method of claim 9, wherein the aluminosilicate comprises one or more of ASTM type C fly ash, ASTM type F fly ash, ground blast furnace slag, calcined clays, partially calcined clays, aluminum-containing silica fume, natural aluminosilicate, synthetic aluminosilicate glass powder, zeolite, scoria, bentonite, or pumice, and the aluminosilicate is present in an amount of about 5% to about 50% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

12. The method of claim 9, wherein the metal silicate comprises one or more of sodium silicate, sodium metasilicate, magnesium silicate, or potassium silicate, and the metal silicate is present in an amount of about 1% to about 80% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

13. The method of claim 9, wherein the alkaline activator comprises one or more of a metal hydroxide, ammonium hydroxide, sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate, lime, caustic soda, Portland cement, or hydrated lime, and the alkaline activator is present in an amount of about 1% to about 20% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

14. The method of claim 9, wherein the carrier fluid comprises one or more of freshwater, saltwater, brine, or seawater, and the carrier fluid is present in an amount of about 40% to about 95% by weight of the geopolymer cement composition.

15. A geopolymer cement composition comprising:

a monophase amorphous hydraulic binder material (MAHBM); a metal silicate;

an alkaline activator; and

a carrier fluid,

wherein the MAHBM comprises silica or alumina core particulates coated with an amorphous calcium silicate hydrate.
