Heap Leach Mining : EPI - geomembrane

Geomembranes for Heap Leaching . Heap leaching has become the preferred method of recovering minerals from low-grade ore from open-pit mines. Copper, gold, silver, and other metals are most common. The metal deposits are dissolved by chemicals applied to the top of the heap of ore, which eventually leaches to the bottom of the pile.
