The ore is placed on geomembrane-lined heap leach pads and the ore-laden solution is drained through lined ditches into impoundments for holding prior to extraction. These ditches are subject to intense sunlight, and in many conditions, extreme thermal expansion and contraction. The conditions require a UV-stable, low thermal expansion-resistant geomembrane. Additionally, longevity and ...
