Understanding the mechanical behavior of rock and rock masses is critical for the successful development and safe operation of mines.
We offer a range of rock mechanics services for open pit and underground mining at all stages of development, from concept, to construction, through operations and closure. We routinely design and manage site investigation programs, develop pit slope designs, conduct stability assessments and operational monitoring for active open pit slopes, evaluate stabilization/support systems for underground mines and conduct micro-seismic monitoring of underground mines.
We are fully experienced with and maintains state-of-the-art geotechnical software including DIPS, SEEP/W, SLOPE/W, FLAC, SWEDGE, CLARA, XSTABL, UDEC, PHASES2D, SHAKE, FLUSA and PLAXIS for stability analyses and assessments of geotechnical problems.
A sound knowledge of ground conditions is an important basis for the planning and construction of any project. Our rock mechanics site investigation services include:
Our comprehensive range of engineering services for the design of open pit slopes includes geomechanical site investigations, rock mass characterization, pit slope stability analysis and open pit slope design. These services include:
Our rock mechanics principles assist clients with cost-effective and safe planning approaches for underground excavations:
Geomechanical, geotechnical, and hydrogeological services to support pre-feasibility and feasibility studies
