The science of geology is the study of planet Earth – the materials of which it is made and the processes that act on these materials. A proper understanding of these materials and processes helps to identify the best opportunities and to make the best choices.
EarthFax has broad experience in the performance of geologic evaluations to support project development. Our geologists love to spend time in the field mapping geologic structures and geomorphology. They love to sit on drill rigs examining cuttings and cores. They love to pour over geophysical logs looking for the subtle and less subtle nuances that are indicative of changes in stratigraphy, mineralogy, and petrology. They love to explain their field observations to anyone that will listen. And they provide those explanations using language that is understandable and an excitement that is catching.
Our geologic services have been instrumental in assessing project seismic settings, coal and mineral resources, and geologic hazards. We have also provided our services on larger project teams involved with the plugging and abandonment of underground injection wells, the stabilization of landslides, the design of geomorphically-compatible stream channels, the characterization of groundwater resources, and the remediation of soil and groundwater contamination. Following are a few examples of our geologic experience:
