At Geohart, we listen to our client’s needs. Our aim is to work closely with our clients to find solutions to their problems and optimise their business.
Backed by a wealth of experience and knowledge Geohart is a geotechnical consultancy able to provide a broad range of services for the mining industry, particularly in the area of geotechnical data acquisition.
Geotechnical Data Acquisition
Decisions about your mine are only as good as the data on which they are based. Geotechnical data is at it’s most useful when it can be tracked consistently over time. Planning and specifying standards, methodologies, software and equipment are all a vital part of getting the best geotechnical data.
Geotechnical Drilling & Sampling
Geohart specialise in geotechnical drilling, particularly hollow stem augers, soil boring, soil sampling, Piezometer installation, wash boring, undisturbed tubes, in-situ testing, penetration and packer testing.
We can sample all kinds of strata and after encountering rock, conduct rock coring.
All logging of core samples is conducted under rigorous methods by qualified and experienced geotechnical engineers to ensure the accuracy of the data collected.
Additionally we offer logging of orientated core samples to obtain structural defect orientation (measurement of alpha and beta angles). All of our tests adhere to industry best practice and ISRM standards.Capability Statement – Logging
Geological 3D Laser Scanning
Geohart utilise the latest equipment and software to bring a complete understanding of a mine and it’s capacities.Capability Statement – 3D Structural Geological
Soil Surveys & Site Classifications
Our detailed soil surveys and soil profiling can be tailored to civil or mining applications and provide insights into morphology, texture, stratification, cracking, parent material, compaction, permeability, salinity and virtually any other characteristic of interest.
All tests and analyses are conducted through a NATA accredited laboratory.
Combining a range of accurate and detailed data Geohart provide accurate site classifications and mitigation strategies for problematic classifications.
