The value of Maccaferri products in the storage process
The safe storage of tailings, waste, leachates and toxic materials is a significant operation within mines. Our range of solutions includes MacLine® geosynthetic membranes, MacGrid® geogrids and MacDrain® drainage geocomposites. These are used in heap leach pad liners, evaporation ponds and lagoon linings. Containment dykes often feature geogrid reinforced soil or gabion retaining structures which support contained material and stockpiles.
How we support drainage systems
The massive loads beneath heap leach pads or stock piles can cause settlement; ultra-tough high-strength Paralink® geogrids can be used within a reinforced basal platform to limit differential settlement, maintaining the performance of the drainage system.
