Near surface geophysics and specialist surveying
Our work is not the most exciting activity to photograph but here are a few somewhat random images that will give an idea of the range of experience we can call upon.
Fencing around a hidden former mineshaft that Neill “found”.
Surveying for hydrogeology issues and potential mine workings on the site of a proposed majopr housing development.
Checking for potential mine workings beneath a rugby pitch before the proposed installation of an artificial surface
A drilling team confirm the presence of shallow mine workings at the precise location identified and marked out by GeoDefinition.
Identifying the source of water feeding a nearby spring prior to a road construction project
Searching for a suspected mine adit (drainage tunnel) that could pose a potential flood risk as the level of a nearby body of water rises.
Surveying a grid for an electro-magnetic survey on an important archaeological site (iron age)
A tricky one. After a large hole opened up beside this residential road a survey was needed to discover whether the road itself was on solid ground.
A surveying challenge. These piles were drilled into the sea from the side of a barge but needed to be positioned to a 75 mm tolerance.
Geophysical surveys at a National Trust property. Yes, that really is Neill watering his electrodes from a can and yes, a German tourist mistook him for a gardener.
Checking for a possible disused sewer on a housing development site.
Checking geological structures about 1,200 metres below ground. Apologies for the hi-viz shorts, it was around 40 degrees C down there.
