We have provided coal mining geotechnical studies and other assistance to State Government Departments, local government (Ipswich and Brisbane City Councils), consultants, developers and the general public.
Coal mining geotechnical studies range from desktop studies to broadscale and highly detailed studies as necessary.
Desktop studies obtain the maximum amount of information on the base geology and past coal mining activities at minimum cost so that an assessment of the state of the underground workings and potential surface subsidence impacts if any can be estimated. The results of the engineering assessment will reveal the extent of any constraints to development, also the best location and/or type of construction to minimise any risk to the development. Broadscale or detailed studies may be required where more specific information is required for example where undocumented mining (mine plans have been lost with time) exists and for other reasons.
