Industry-leading underground haul road and mine tailings products
Gorilla-Snot is a synthetic copolymer dispersion engineered to control dust and erosion on mine tailings impoundments. The solution is topically applied to the tailings where it penetrates to create a light and durable surface crust. The surface crust remains water permeable for air and water, yet perfect for suppressing PM10 and PM2.5 particulate matter to maintain air quality. Increased applications of Gorilla-Snot are highly effective for water erosion control to maintain the dam slope and bench stability and integrity. Gorilla-Snot’s unique surface crust remains light and flexible yet strong and durable resulting in long-term performance capable of withstanding intense environmental conditions.
- Customized rates to last from months to years
- Controls erosion on dam slopes
- Customizable with pigments for color options
- Does not affect flotation process
- Does not rinse away with rain
The world’s only patented, state-of-the-art synthetic dust suppression fluid; engineered to “wet out” any soil or aggregate for intense-use mining operations. Durasoil’s unique water-insoluble properties create a long-term, re-workable and self-healing solution that coats and agglomerates particulates, weighing them down without evaporating or freezing. Its revolutionary, ultra-pure formulation is distinctively crystal clear, odorless and formulated to meet the highest standards of environmental efficacy.
- Non-Chloride / Non-Petroleum
- Non-Slippery once penetrated
- Applied “as-is”, no water needed
- Non-corrosive to equipment
- Continuously re-workable / re-gradable
