Geophysical bedrock fragmentation and quality studies

Geophysical bedrock fragmentation and quality studies are used as background information and as a tool in land use planning, in site selection for the final disposal of waste and in the planning of industrial and mining projects.

Research data facilitates the planning and steering of construction work and enables a higher accuracy for cost assessments. Schedules can also be planned with more accuracy when the requirements for construction in the target area are clearly specified.

Bedrock fragmentation and quality surveys are often also a requirement in permit processes.

Service content

  • Planning for the study
  • Surveying bedrock quality (e.g. cracking and fracture zones) in the target area of a rock construction or construction stone project
  • Surveys on bedrock fragmentation and quality
  • Measurements on land and water areas depending on the method
  • Analysis and interpretation of measurements
  • Reporting: anomaly maps, vertical cross-section images, fragmentation zone maps, cracking model, bedrock model (as an option), constructability maps, 3D visualisations and an assessment on raw material for construction stone projects

Your benefits

  • You will gain an understanding on the geophysical properties of the bedrock in your target area, which enables you to more accurately plan your project’s schedule and estimate its costs.
