ENVIRONMENTAL LABORATORY: 

  • Specialising in acid sulphate soils.

  • Member of Australian Soil & Plant Analysis Council (ASPAC).

  • Participant in the ASPAC Inter-Laboratory Proficiency Program

ENVIRONMENTAL DRILLING & SAMPLING: 

  • Over Land: Jacmaz 500 4x4 Drilling Rig

                               Pengo 4x4 Drilling & Boring Rig

  • Over water: (A) Motorized Pontoon/Barge with Vibracore Sampler (mainly used in difficult access area's)

                                 (B) Twin Hull Shark Cat with Vibracore Sampler (open water, river ect)

 

GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION DRILLING & BORING:

  • Jacmaz 500 mounted on 4x4 Landcruiser

  • Pengo heavy duty drilling & boring rig

  • 4x4 support & cartage vehicle

 

SAMPLING TECHNIQUES:

  • Auger and or Wash Bore.

  • U50 (Undisturbed tube sample).

  • Vibracore (Continuous undisturbed sampling).

  • SPT.

  • Wherever possible and particuarly in relation to Acid sulphate soil, Vibracore sampling is the method of choice.

The advantages of Vibracore are:

  • Continuous sample up to 12m depth.

  • No sample loss in wet or very loose soils, due to a vacuum applied in the sample barrel.

  • No cross contamination of soil profile where water table is present.

 

Please note: All prices quoted here are excluding GST.

                           The prices otherwise are complete, with no administration fee's, batch fee's or other extras.

                           They are current for 2015 and unless otherwise advised, will be applicable into the following year.

Suitable for deep holes in hard clays, weathered rock, water table (washboring)

 

PENGO DRILL & BORE RIG:

  • Temporarily unavailable-undergoing modifications

Can bore through alluvial gravels etc, prior to continuing conventional drilling.

 

OVER WATER SAMPLING & PRICE SCHEDULE 2018

The vibracore sampler is used to extract a continuous tube sample of soft marine sediments to a depth of 6 metres.

It employs a vibra-hammer with vacuum introduced into the tube to assist in sample retention.

Available at full day hire (9 hours). Additional hours beyond full day at hourly rate.

Travelling/Establishment at corresponding hourly rate.

 

SHARK CAT OR PONTOON + TECHNICIAN + OFFSIDER + SUPPORT VEHICLE:

  • $2750/day
