Mining produces large amounts of tailings that can be contaminants. In this scenario, the geomembrane is used in waterproofing tailings dams, leach piles, ponds and coverings, preventing soil and water contamination.

In this application, it’s very low permeability, excellent chemical and mechanical resistance and excellent resistance to
the sun´s rays, are highlighted, which make it an effective solution in the most important projects involving safety, stability, waste hazardousness, legal issues. Where environmental, financial and social impact is critical in case of failure.

When stability is a critical factor, the embossed textured geomembrane is indicated because its structured and constant texture provides reproducible friction angle values and high friction values.
