Infrastructure and Land Development

Subsurface Mapping

Detailed mapping of subsurface structure for construction, land development and risk assessment including;

  • Geological mapping for the determination of overburden thickness and depth to bedrock. GPR, MASW and seismic refraction
  • Identification of cap rock, clay layers or intermediate soft or hard layers. MASW and ERI
  • Location of isolated features such as cavities and voiding, boulder floaters, dykes, sills, fracture zones, palaeochannels and karst formations. MASW, GPR and ERI
Geotechnical Parameters

Determination of geotechnical parameters to assist in the earthworks and construction design including;

  • Assessment of material strength including ground compaction and rock strength for determination of rippability and pile/footing design. MASW and seismic refraction
  • Calculation of geotechnical parameters including shear modulus and Young’s modulus via measurement of p- and s-wave velocities using seismic methods. Seismic refraction, MASW, VSP or borehole tomography
  • Determination of in-situ electrical properties for earthing design. Electrical resistivity and thermal resistivity
  • Determination of liquefaction potential within seismically active regions. MASW and ReMi
Mining and Energy

Subsurface assessment specific to the mining, oil and gas, and renewable energy sectors including;

  • Delineation of magnetic ore bodies. Magnetometer
  • Design, remediation and monitoring of Tailing storage Facilities. ERI, TEM, FEM and MASW
  • Design of vibrating mine processing infrastructure. MASW
  • Location of historic mine workings. GPR, ERI and FEM.
  • Site evaluation for wind and solar farm sites including investigations for wind turbine footing design. Seismic and electrical methods
