Pond 2 / Pond 6S closure project site visit

“REE and Hatch’s team were up in Gove NT for the Pond 2 / Pond 6S closure project site visit last week and managed to get onto our Pond 5 project. Pond 5 is 100 Hectares of red mud (caustic bauxite tailings) which needed to be reprofiled and capped. This HDPE geomembrane is a key element of the cap as it allows release of rainfall runoff from Pond 5, which is essential for reducing the Gove liquor inventory so the remaining ponds can be closed. Once capped the lack of infiltration will assist red mud consolidation and reduce seepage. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a site visit has to be worth a thousand pictures”. Dennis Loffell
