Keeping tailings contained is often the most significant environmental liability for a mining project. Therefore, geomembrane-lined containment structures are designed to withstand extreme acidic and alkaline solutions and UV exposure when creating an impermeable barrier to prevent the release of mining residues into the environment.
Furthermore, geosynthetic products offer the ideal solution where water is scarce, for example for water-intensive processes like hydraulic fracturing. Here, holding ponds are constructed to capture and hold water for future needs. Geosynthetic products securely store and protect valuable water resources from contamination and leakage.
