Mining - Geohazards

Mining

Receive detailed subsurface mapping of sediments and rock prior to developing your mine. Using sophisticated, non-invasive geophysical surveying methods, it is possible to map sand, clay and limestone bodies over large areas and characterize depths to limestone or other rock bodies beneath sediments of up to 130 feet. Our team of geologists has extensive knowledge of Florida’s unique geology and provides you with options that meet your time and budget constraints. Questions? Call us and let’s discuss your project.

1.5-Mining-Placeholder-ImageGeology & Geophysical Equipment

Get access to advanced, non-invasive surveying techniques with our state-of-the art instrumentation and software along with classic subsurface exploration methods.

Electrical Resistivity Imaging (ERI)

Electrical Resistivity testing has made many advances over the past three decades of use. Where 10 years prior, less than 20 data readings were sufficient, we now record hundreds and sometimes thousands of data points within each traverse. The increased data collection allows for a much more detailed picture of the subsurface conditions. Geohazards utilizes 2-D and 3-D imaging techniques capable of depths of 100 feet or greater to best characterize the subsurface.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Using a range of up to four different antennae frequencies, GPR surveys can detect anomalous subsurface features, underground storage tanks and voids under concrete slabs. Geohazards’ can focus an investigation within the upper 12 inches to up to 30 feet deep.

Electromagnetic Induction (EM)

The Profiler EMP-400 can map zones of buried contamination plumes, buried metallic debris and large buried objects.

Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW)

Determining P-wave and shear wave velocities at depth is often a requirement for the design of large structures. The MASW is a viable and cost effective method to measure the elastic properties of shear wave velocities of materials at depth.

Soil Sampling and Testing

We offer standard penetration test borings, auger borings, Shelby tube sampling, hand cone penetration test and laboratory soil analyses.
