With the technological process for preparation of mineral raw materials large
of flotation tailing are generated. This flotation tailing is disposed in to the special
arranged location so called flotation tailing dumps. Flotation tailing dumps should
provide sustainable development for the environment.
Prerequisite for one flotation tailing dump to be constructed and to be
functional according to the contemporary world standards is the application of the
modern materials during its construction. Modern materials that have broad
applications to meet the conditions for a flotation tailing dump to be constructed
according to the international standards are the geosynthetics. Most frequently
applied geosynthetics are: geotextiles, geomembranes, geogrids, geopipes,
geosynthetic clay layers, geocomposites.
The geosynthetics are performing the function of separation, reinforcement,
filtration, drainage, and if necessary, as a barrier to retain the fluids and gases, and
thereby ensuring a high level of environmental protection. With the application of
these materials the overall generated flotation tailing is placed in so called “geo
barrier“, which is constructed of geosynthetic materials.
