Geosynthetics are used in construction of various components of modern mining facilities, including process solution ponds, heap leach pads, stormwater containment, wastewater treatment ponds and closures. Harsh environmental conditions provide a challenge to engineers designing the projects. In addition, increasing environmental and cost pressures are requiring lining systems to achieve greater performance levels than ever. GCLs are rapidly becoming a desired component of mining liner systems because of the benefits they provide in cost effective construction, environmental compliance and process solution leak reduction. In weather-sensitive remote or high-altitude locations, GCLs offer far greater installation efficiencies than compacted clay.
