This month, International Lining Technology would like to feature one of our recently completed mining lining projects.
Despite some issues related to weather, we finished the Emigrant Leach Pad Phase 2 project in Carlin, Nevada, in October. The four-month project required 13 to 15 employees to install more than 4 million square feet of 80 ml HDPE primary.
Preparing the ground and covering it with an impermeable geosynthetic pad is the first step in heap leaching. The extraction process involves placing precious metal ore on a pad in a pile and sprinkling a leaching solvent that dissolves the metal. Gold, silver, copper or uranium is then collect at the bottom of the pad for further processing.
International Lining Technology is one of the nation’s leading geosynthetics and geomembrane contractors, and we offer pond, pit, pad and canal lining services.
