Water Geosciences


Water has been identified as one of the key Global Risks by the World Economic Forum. Our team provides holistic and robust Water Management Plans and Strategies to ensure you adequately manage this risk and establish long term success and optimal outcomes for the project.

Our capabilities include:

Groundwater

  •  Geophysical surveying (including magnetic, EM and resistivity);
  •  Borehole siting for water supply, mine dewatering or groundwater monitoring;
  •  Well field and water supply investigations
  •  Drilling programme oversight and borehole design;
  •  Aquifer testing;
  •  Tracer tests and analysis;
  •  Surface water – Groundwater interaction studies
  •  Groundwater liability and impact assessments related to mine closure;
  •  Water-related database design and management;
  •  3D site conceptual modelling and video animations;
  •  Seepage Modelling;
  •  Analytical Modelling;
  •  Numerical 3D Modelling; and
  •  Mine dewatering modelling, ingress predictions and management.
