Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical Engineering

Our aerial technology and cutting-edge software can provide an accurate and comprehensive geotechnical snapshot at low-cost. This in-depth understanding of the landscape gives our clients the detailed data required to minimise risk and maximise efficiency.

Our principal geotechnical engineers are experienced in the design and construction of civil infrastructure projects across a number of mining jurisdictions, namely Australia, Canada, Africa and Southeast Asia.

Previous projects include:

  • Tailings storage facilities
  • Heap leach pads
  • Open pit design
  • Box cut mine portals
  • Site-wide water management.

To achieve efficiency from conception to commissioning, we provide:

  • Detailed designs
  • Construction supervision
  • Survey control
  • Field-testing services to ensure a project is efficiently managed.

Examination, Design and Operation

At REC, our geotechnical capabilities deliver efficient results across the project lifecycle. From mapping to drilling and testing, our investigations are extremely thorough.

Once a comprehensive understanding of the landscape has been obtained, our geotechnical engineering design seeks to deliver world-class efficiencies through customised simplicity.

Our geotechnical design capabilities include site investigation, data collection, mapping, rock mass and soil characterisation, stability and cavability analysis, deformation and seepage modelling, support system design, numerical modelling, mining sequence optimisation, management and training.

Our flexible approach means we are able to proactively make alterations as needed in order to keep to program.

Our ability to deliver real and measurable efficiencies extends to operations. While we endeavour to give our clients solutions that minimise the need for ongoing support, our hands-on team are able and willing to provide operational support either on a continuous or ad-hoc basis as we work to ensure that our clients continue to reap the benefits of operational efficiency.
