Expert Geosynthetics Installation for Better Silver and Gold Mining ROI

The Coeur Rochester mine in Rochester, Nevada produced 4.6 million ounces of silver and 52,600 ounces of gold in 2016. One of the reasons for the success of the open pit and surface mining operation, with its on-site heap leach pads, has been the use of 80-mil high-density polyethylene geomembranes and geosynthetic clay liners for the various containment needs and geotextiles for cushioning, prote... »

New Short Course: Slope Stability of Containment Systems

LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER! Slope Stability Short Course

Containment facilities require multiple geosynthetics, which creates a need to design with a strong understanding of the interface between soils and geosynthetics and between different geosynthetics. The new short course, Slope Stability of Containment Systems, will address this topic May 23 – 24 in Austin, Texas. The presenters for the course represent the geosynthetics testing and environmental ... »
