Cost Effective, Sustainable Erosion Control and Hardstand Solution for Mining Sites
The Geohex Erosion Control System is a uniquely Australian and environmentally friendly solution for managing erosion control on mining sites.
Designed and manufactured in by Sydney-based A Plus Plastics, Geohex is Australia’s leading erosion control product. Made to ISO9001:2014 standards, Geohex is a high impact resistant, 100% recycled and recyclable co-polymer polypropylene.
With a maximum load bearing capacity of 1200t/sqm when filled with soil (or equivalent), the Geohex Erosion Control System can be used for ground stabilisation of roads on mining sites as well as drainage stabilisation in hardstands, haul roads and equipment yards. Geohex can also be used in the stabilisation of mine site embankments, drains, driveways and airstrips.
When compared to traditional concrete pours, the Geohex Erosion Control System is an extremely cost effective solution from as little as $30 a square metre. Additionally, given the isolated nature of most mining sites, the lightweight nature of the Geohex erosion control matting means it is extremely cheap and easy to transport. Each standard size Geohex panel measures 0.5 square metres and weighs a mere 2.3kg. When nested together for transportation, 136 square metres of Geohex can fit on one pallet.
Thanks to its light, modular plastic paver design, the Geohex Erosion Control Solution is ideal for use in water management and surface stabilisation at mining sites and facilities. It is an effective erosion control matting solution and is the cheapest, easiest to install and most sustainable product on the market.
How Mining Companies are Using Geohex for Erosion Control
The Geohex Erosion Control System is increasingly being employed as a hardstand alternative to concrete and asphalt by mining companies throughout Australia. As well as hardstand areas, there are a number of other creative uses for Geohex on mining sites. These include applications such as defining pedestrian crossings and walkways and other critical areas on a mine site such as designated exclusion zones.
Geohex offers a unique combination of low purchase cost, quick and easy installation, and impressive load bearing capacity. Another key benefit of Geohex’s erosion control system is that it is so simple and quick to install that, if needed, on site labourers can install it with minimal instruction. And critically for mining sites, unlike concrete or asphalt, the Geohex Erosion Control System is very easy to remove from the ground once a mining company has finished with a site.
The Geohex Erosion Control System is delivering the right solution at the right price for mining companies throughout Australia and can be found on mine sites nationwide.
