Earlier this year, Geofabrics Australasia launched our Australian Mining Hub; a team of experts providing solutions to the Australian mining sector.
Today, Geofabrics is pleased to announce the addition of two new product solutions to our mining portfolio which increases safety and decreases the risk associated with mining infrastructure.
Geofabrics has recently secured the distribution rights to Tensar Underground Mining Grid; polymeric grids ideal for pillar wrapping, roof and rib control installations. A geosynthetic solution developed to enhance the safety of underground mining infrastructure and the people who operate them.
Additionally, Geofabrics has secured the rights to a European made product solution, BMI Siplast Teranap Bituminous Geomembrane (BGM). BGM provides environmental protection across a range of mining applications including tailing dams, heap leach operations and water storages.
At Geofabrics, we take great pride in providing solutions to some of our most immediate environmental problems. These include reducing waste to landfill through finding applications for recycled plastics, developing containment solutions for PFAS contamination and providing sustainable solutions for the rehabilitation of mine sites.
Dennis Grech comments, “The environmental protection and safety solutions that we offer to Australian mining is supported by our ongoing investment in Australian R&D and innovation. The Queensland based Geofabrics Centre for Geosynthetic Research, Innovation and Development (GRID) provides the world’s best R&D in using geosynthetics. Our laboratory solves complex mining problems with products developed and tested to suit specific site conditions.
Safety is central to everything we do at Geofabrics. As an Australian manufacturer and indeed, employer of well over 200 people, we take great pride in bringing to Australia solutions that protect the lives of people and make our workplaces safe.”
In launching the dedicated group of mining geosynthetics experts, Peter Tzelepis states, “Geofabrics has been the supplier of choice to building Australia’s key infrastructure for over 40 years. We have supplied and provided solutions on many mining projects across Australia and international regions. Our mining hub offers a community of experts that our customers can access for their immediate project requirements.
Our proposition to Australia’s mining community is a suite of products for application in ground support, dump walls and retaining structures. In addition to containment and lining for tailings dams and waste and mine site rehabilitation.
Many of our products are made right here in our Australian manufacturing facilities, supported by Australian innovation through our GRID and our expert team of sales engineers.”
