Load support, slope remediation, stormwater control, and vegetated retaining walls: these are all mining applications for which highly effective, extremely durable, and easy-to-implement geocell solutions are available. Presto Geosystems’ video demonstrates some of the most common uses for the GEOWEB® Geocell System in the mining industry. These geocellular confinement systems are providing cost-saving solutions for a sector with highly demanding performance criteria.
For mines, geocell solutions improve haul road long-term stability. They can be transported efficiently to remote areas for easy deployment. They can be installed over rough subgrades.
Presto’s video uses a mix of live and still shots to describe the applications and their simple steps. For example, in only a few frames, the video concisely details platform construction with GEOWEB®:

  • Place geotextile
  • Place geocells atop geotextile and expand and connect cells
  • Infill local stone

The savings realized versus hauling in new sources of aggregate are substantial, and the speed of construction enables mining operations to run sooner—which can lead to earlier yield for the mine.
