Geotechnical

DMT Geosciences has extensive experience in geophysical investigations for geotechnical applications using surface and borehole geophysical methods.

Applications

  • Rippability and pre-excavation studies
  • Pipeline ROW
  • Road bed/bridge deck/pavement studies
  • Determination of dynamic soil properties/downhole seismic testing
  • Soil resistivity measurements/grounding design
  • Geophysical borehole logging in vertical and deviated holes
  • Granular deposits
  • Delineation of taliks

Location:

High River, Alberta

Objectives:

Using a combination of seismic and ground resistivity surveys to identify and measure the thickness of coarse grained sediments and determine the depth to bedrock.

Dyrgas Gate Sinkhole Mitigation
Location:

Canmore, Alberta

Objectives:

Determine the elevation of the bedrock and locate an airshaft from abandoned coal workings.
