Environmental preservation is increasingly gaining importance these days due to the fact that it has as a substantial relevance in the preparation process of the technical and project documentation in the field of engineering professions, particularly in the energy, construction and mining. Project documentation must be prepared in accordance to the variety of laws and regulations regarding the norms and standards that has to be met and complied with. Certainly, this approach would notably increase the project costs, but is of crucial importance since preservation of the environment is imperative. Tailings nowadays are considered to be potential huge polluters of living environment. The negative impact of these, as defined in the law on mineral resources, mining waste installations can be portrayed through pollution of all three natural aspects in wider environment, surface and groundwater, air and soil. In this paper will be presented geosynthetic materials used in the design of the tailings installations (storage) within the mining complexes as well as other places. The positive and negative sides if their application is not done as part of a comprehensive and not partial resolving of the potential pollution issue are exemplified through specific example of the Sasa Mine.
