Geophysical techniques play a key role in economic geology – the search for raw materials and mineral resources that can be used for industrial or scientific purposes.
Through borehole logging, we can provide invaluable information on the quality and quantity of deposits such as hydrocarbons, metals, coal, road stone, potash and other evaporates, limestone and marble.
Geophysical investigations can provide geotechnical and hydrogeological information critical to mine planning and de-watering.
We can undertake detailed rock analysis allowing orientation of discontinuities such as fractures and bedding.
Rock density, porosity and strength can be determined before mine construction begins, as can the presence of aquifers and zones of water movement.
Borehole logging can also provide vital information for lithological identification and correlation across the site.
Monitoring ground water for quality and dewatering.
