Mine Geology and Geotechnics

Providing comprehensive geological and geotechnical interpretations of downhole images, including:

  • Structural configuration analysis including dip analysis of formation beddings and identifying structural units in complex folded and faulted settings with incorporation of available surface data and mine maps.
  • Fast track and detailed rock defect analysis, classification, and quantification such as joint aperture size, spacing, filling minerals and shear/broken zone extent. This can be followed by rock defect stability analysis.
  • Rock stress orientation and mechanical units determination using integrated rock hardness evaluations.
  • Multidisciplinary and multi-hole geological and petrophysical data integration and 3D mapping.
