All About Heap Leach Pads

Leaching heaps, especially those processed with bio-active ingredients, tend to heat up significantly in the sun each day. This causes a lot of stretching during the hottest part of the day and then shrinking as the heap cools. In order to keep the liner from tearing or moving in place, look for a liner material with a low thermal expansion rate.
