HDPE géomembrane liner, also known as HDPE geomembrane liner,  is a kind of synthetic material widely used in mining engineering. The HDPE géomembrane liner is usually made of high-polymer materials such as high density polyethylene  or polypropylene,  and it  has excellent impermeability, leakproofness, and compressive strength. HDPE geomembrane linercan be used in mining tailings ponds, stacking yards, oil seepage ponds, and other anti-seepage engineering projects.

The main function of the HDPE géomembrane liner for mining use is to prevent liquids such as water and oil from penetrating underground, avoiding pollution to the environment and damage to groundwater resources. At the same time, the HDPE geomembrane liner can also resist pressure and vibration in mining engineering, maintaining the stability and safety of the engineering structure.

The production process of HDPE geomembrane liner for mining use usually includes extrusion, blown film, and calendering methods. The produced HDPE geomembrane liner has good physical properties and chemical stability, and can adapt to various complex mining environments and engineering requirements. In addition, HDPE géomembrane liner for mining use has the advantages of easy construction, short construction period, and low cost, so it has been widely used in mining engineering.

Why Chose 2mm HDPE Géomembrane Liner Kenya for Gold Mining

Kenya is abundant in gold deposits, primarily found in the greenstone belt region. These deposits consist of quartz veins and are influenced by tectonic activity, characterized by ductile shear zones and faults. The host rocks comprise basalt and banded iron-bearing formations. The gold ore vein itself is composed of quartz, carbonate, and small amounts of chlorite and sericite. The primary ore mineral is iron sulfide, often accompanied by chalcopyrite and arsenopyrite in certain cases. The surrounding rocks near the ore vein have undergone hydrothermal alteration during deformation, resulting in schists rich in green mudstone, carbon quartz, sericite, and acid salt rock. These rocks contain disseminated pyrite and other sulfide minerals.

The known gold resources in Kenya are predominantly located in the greenstone belt of Nyanza Province in the western part of the country. Additionally, gold deposits can be found in regions such as Kakamega, Visiga, Migori, Demara, Bondo, Xiaya, Pokete, Turkana, and Nandi.

To effectively extract gold from these mining sites, it is crucial to have appropriate containment measures in place. This is where the 2mm HDPE geomembrane liner comes into play. The HDPE géomembrane liner acts as a reliable barrier, preventing the leakage of harmful substances into the surrounding environment. Its durable and impermeable properties make it an ideal choice for gold mining operations, ensuring the safe and efficient management of mining by-products.

By selecting the 2mm HDPE geomembrane liner for gold mining operations in Kenya, miners can enhance environmental protection and promote sustainable mining practices, safeguarding both the local ecosystems and the health of nearby communities.

The benefits of using HDPE Géomembrane Liner are as follows

  1. Flexibility and high permeability: Geomembrane is a flexible waterproof material with a high permeability coefficient (110-17cm/s).
  2. Heat and cold resistance: It has good heat and cold resistance, with a working environment temperature range of 110°C to -70°C.
  3. Chemical stability: It has good chemical stability and can resist strong acid and alkali corrosion. It is also a good anti-corrosion material for oil.
  4. High tensile strength: It has high tensile strength to meet the requirements of high-standard engineering projects.
  5. Weather and aging resistance: It has strong weather resistance and aging resistance, and can maintain its original performance after long-term exposure.
  6. Overall performance: It has strong tensile strength and elongation at break, making it suitable for use in various harsh geological and climatic conditions.

The high-quality characteristics of HDPE geomembrane are as follows:

  1. Easy construction: There is no need to lay a concrete cushion layer as long as the pool is excavated and leveled accordingly.
  2. Fast construction: There is no setting period required for structural concrete.
  3. Resistance to foundation deformation: HDPE geomembrane has good fracture elongation, which allows it to resist foundation settlement or deformation.
  4. Good effect: This is the biggest characteristic of HDPE geomembrane.
  5. Recovery after use: This is the biggest feature of HDPE geomembrane. After use, it can be folded up and the pool body backfilled to restore it to its original state.
