Mining operations continue to scale up, achieving previously thought “impossible” designs  every few years. These engineering feats enable new impossibilities to be proposed. While heap leach engineering and technology is driving much of the escalation in mining scale, a rather simple solution is helping make these installations safer and more efficient—which is to say more profitable: raincoats. ... »

Floating Covers, Evaporation and Mine Economics

By Mike Sadlier – Using a hypothetical example rooted in actual project costs, the economic costs and benefits of geomembrane floating cover systems for controlling evaporative water loss in mining and resource projects are compared to systems that make allowances for evaporation. ** Many projects, especially for mining and resource processing, are being developed in areas where water is sca... »
