WATER PUDDLE ELECTRICAL LEAK LOCATION IN CELL 5 OF THE LARONDE MINE (PORTION OF WORK 2020)
Construction of a new tailings pond at the LaRonde Mine began in fall 2020. The bottom and dikes were covered with a 1.5 mm thick white low density polyethylene geomembrane. The services of Groupe Alphard were retained for the quality assurance of synthetic materials as well as the leak location by water puddle on the exposed geomembrane. The total area of the portion tested in 2020 was 97,500 m².
