TechnoMine, a division of InfoMine Inc, is a leading source of online information about technology for the mining and geoscience communities. It provides insightful articles, news, reviews, and resources on mining technology and related topics. We invite you to browse the following technology reviews related to covers.
An overview of how covers are used at mine sites. Two case studies are given of covers used on soft tailings and covers used in cold climates. Additional resources presented include online courses, papers, and books where you can obtain more information on covers technology.
Geosynthetics may be used at mines during operation in liners for surface water ponds (including storm-water, non-storm-water, and sediment ponds), process solution ponds (including pregnant or barren solution ponds and recycle ponds), heap leach pads, waste rock dumps, and tailings impoundments. Geosynthetics may be used at mines at closure in the covers of heap leach pads, waste rock dumps, and tailings impoundments.
Topics covered in this technology review include the use of geosynthetics in mining, impact of mine wastes on geosynthetics, and and geosynthetics for uranium wastes.
