Our Background Service Overview Case Studies

WATER SUPPLIES

SGS has successfully explored, found and developed numerous water supplies throughout Australia,

DEWATERING

SGS has assessed groundwater dewatering requirements for many mining projects.

GROUNDWATER MONITORING AND SAMPLING

SGS has designed, implemented and managed many groundwater monitoring and sampling.

PUMPING TESTS

The SGS team can plan, organise and conduct pumping tests to assess aquifers.

GROUNDWATER AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Providing groundwater investigations to assist environmental assessments in all industries.

DRILLING SUPERVISION AND BORE CONSTRUCTION

SGS staff have extensive experience in organising and supervising drilling and bore construction programmes throughout Australia.

SEAWATER INTRUSION PREVENTION

SGS has designed programmes to prevent seawater intrusion in coastal areas.

GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT

WATER SUPPLIES

SGS Consultants have extensive experience in exploration and development of groundwater supplies in many areas and environments across Australia. Groundwater supplies have been found for agricultural, mining, Government and infrastructure projects.
SGS Consultants can design and manage the construction of borefields, and provide indicative advice on pump requirements.

MINE DEWATERING

Mine dewatering has been evaluated and/or implemented for mining projects. Some notable ones are:
Mt Todd Gold Mine (NT)
Phosphate Hill Mine (QLD)
Merlin Deposit, Ivanhoe (QLD)
Conquest Mining Ltd (QLD)
Mungana Goldmines (QLD)

MONITORING AND SAMPLING

Salinisation investigations have been undertaken for the delineation, monitoring and remediation of groundwater contamination arising from agriculture, livestock, landfill sites, sewage treatment plants, industrial waste dumps and mine tailings dams. Environmental impact studies for various projects in rural and urban areas have also been undertaken.

AQUIFER RECHARGE BY INJECTION

Aquifer storage and recovery projects are under way in several hydrogeological environments. They are applicable to water conservation operations at:
Burke River Aquifer (Ivanhoe Australia)
Phosphate Hill QLD

DRILLING SUPERVISION

Borefield Assessments, including aquifer testing and bore construction have been conducted throughout Australia, including:
Water supply borefields
Reviews of borefield operations
Dewatering operations
Groundwater monitoring (implementation and review)
Tailings-dam seepage
