Award of Excellence Report

“Use of Geosynthetics in the Mining and Mineral Processing Industry,”

Karin Renken, David Mchaina, Ernest Yanful, 2007 – CD: $25

The objective of the research under the IGS-NA Award of Excellence was to investigate the main uses of geosynthetics in the mining and mineral-processing sector and to summarize relevant field performance results and technical considerations for their use. The study methodology included but was not limited to a questionnaire sent to the mining industry and individual industry contacts, personal communication with consultants and colleagues, field investigations, and literature review. To meet the study objective, pertinent case studies of geosynthetic use were identified, technical considerations were compiled, and key aspects of the selected case studies were summarized.
