Services

  Trial Hole Investigation Geopractica undertakes foundation investigations through the profiling and sampling of subsoils by descending deep large diameter auger holes.  Geopractica employs engineering geologists for fieldwork using in house equipment supplied by Geopractica Contracting.  Safety in large diameter trial holes is of paramount importance and the engineering geologist is equipped with precautionary safety harness and breathing equipment. Borehole Core Borehole core logging from core drilling, done in house by Geopractica Contracting, is used for site investigations for buildings, bridges, mine developments, dams, roads and railways.    

Test PitGeopractica makes extensive use of Tractor mounted TLB excavators, owned by the company, for excavating test pits to depths of 3m to 4m for the purposes of profiling and sampling subsoils for site investigation for - Foundation Investigation, Road Centre Line investigation and Borrow Pit Location.

  Geopractica provides geotechnical consulting services throughout the engineering industry for Mine infrastructure development, Oil and Gas related developments, Commercial developments, Rail, Roads and Earthworks, Dams, Bridges and Harbour developments.  Using in house facilities Geopractica provides it's clients a full range of geotechnical services from the planning stage to drilling and probing to field data acquisition to laboratory testing and final report preparation and presentation. Magnetic Survey Interpretation

Geopractica used magnetic survey together with core drilling to delineate the Ogies Dolerite dyke at the new Tweefontein Coal development for Xstrata.
