Structural Geology

Structural geology is the basis for many mining, mineral exploration, infrastructure and rock engineering projects. As such, understanding structure allows for informed decision making and leads to a reduction in risk and expenditures on projects. 

Structural site characterization is a fundamental input into many mining (both open pit and underground) and rock engineering projects. Terrane has worked on a wide range of projects, both domestic and international for mines, mineral exploration, utilities, transportation departments, and developers. We bring this wealth of experience to our client’s projects.

Key services:

  • Structural mapping, site assessment, and 3D modelling
  • Structural controls and geometry of mineral deposits
  • Oriented core logging and interpretation
  • Optical and acoustic televiewer interpretation
  • 3D structural geology modelling in support of resource estimation
  • Fault models as an input to the geotechnical model for open pit and underground mine design
  • Using UAVs for advanced structural mapping of exploration sites and open pit mines
  • Airborne LiDAR and geophysical interpretation
  • We have done several projects with Terrane in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Tony and the rest of the staff are great to work with and provide excellent knowledge and cutting-edge technology. I would highly recommend them.
