Value Per Data Sample
Whereas borehole drilling programs may complete one or two holes in day, surface geophysics is capable of providing 100’s or even 1000’s of linear horizontal metres of detailed sampling of the physical properties of the ground within the same time frame.

Investigation Stealth & Portability
Survey methodologies used for shallow geophysical investigations are typically hand-portable and environmentally non-destructive. Often geophysical survey data can be acquired over areas that are either not feasible or simply too expensive for a drill rig to access.

2D & 3D UNDERGROUND VISION.
Shallow geophysics enables users to visualize underground features in-between and beyond borehole locations. Where detailed information is required, surveys can be completed over gridded layouts to produce 3-Dimensional views of subterranean features.
Looking for a Solution.
A comprehensive understanding of what lies beneath the surface within the confines of your project area matters. Encountering unforeseen subsurface features can be detrimental to your overall project budget and completion schedule. Shallow geophysics helps to increase your preparedness by providing the capacity to investigate, detect and map mission critical subsurface features throughout a project area, well beyond what can be inferred from borehole drilling programs alone.
