Slope Stability Services:

  • Development of geological, structural and rock mass models for the project area and pit sectors
  • Computer modelling of pit, rock slope and soil or dam and waste dump stability
  • Stability analysis and determination of bench face inter-ramp, and overall pit slope configurations for each design sector (including kinematic and overall stability analyses)

Geohazard Services:

  • Geological conditions that involve long / short term geological processes such as landslides, rockfalls, over-pressured zones, shallow gas accumulation, volcanoes, earthquakes
  • Corridor assessment
  • Landslide, rockslide and debris flow assessments
