About the GeoZone

GeoZone GeoServices is a multidisciplinary consulting firm providing solutions for the civil engineering and mining industries.  We have over 30 years experience in geotechnical consulting, mine rockfall protection, and geotechnical monitoring and instrumentation, having worked on some of the largest civil engineering projects and mines in Southern Africa, West Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

Instrumentation & Monitoring

In addition GeoZone has a Mineral Exploration Division with particular experience in geophysical and geochemical surveys on a number of commodities and ore deposits.  We also have Remote Sensing and GIS capability.

GeoZone also has an office in Lesotho and provides support for the mines, dams, roads, bridges, tunnels and other geotechnical projects in the mountain kingdom.​

Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical Engineering ia a dark art thanks to the variable nature of the geological materials on which any structure is founded.  No matter how well a building is designed, getting the geotech wrong will cause the project to fail.  Witness the leaning tower of Pisa where they didn't get the geotech right, and they weren't the only ones.

Geotechnical Instrumentation

Monitoring is becoming an increasingly important part of our lives and no less importantly for analysing the performance of dams, large civil engineering projects or mines.  Safety is paramount too and instrumentation can go a long way to providing vital feedback and real-time warnings of impending failure.  Read more>>>

Rockfall Protection Systems

The most famous South African example is still Chapman's Peak Drive, where rock fall protection has been placed plentifully, strategically and at times artfully.  But lesser road cuttings and certainly mining operations can benefit enormously from these kinds of systems to make things safe.

GeoZone GeoServices Rock Africa Rope Access

Rock Barring & Making Safe

Where budgets are limited, or operating environments dynamic, sometimes the best way of improving the safety of a rock slope is to just knock the offending material off the rock face.  This can be done amazingly effectively with rope access.   Read more>>>

Mineral Exploration

GeoZone has a Mineral Exploration Division with particular experience in geophysical and geochemical surveys on a number of commodities and deposits throughout Southern Africa. Read more>>>

Remote Sensing & GIS

Remote sensing is used as a tool to extract information about the land surface structure, composition or subsurface conditions. From mineral exploration to development planning, good data and GIS systems are literally invaluable. Read more>>>

Aerial Photography & Cartography

Technology seems to be accelerating at a breathtaking pace, not least in the world of drones and aerial surveys.  Gone are the days of old satellite imagery or out of date aerial photographs - with a drone you can have good imagery by the afternoon.  Mapping, record keeping,  and progress monitoring at your fingertips.  Read more>>>

Quality Assurance and Compaction Control

Quality assurance is the life blood of fill construction.  Without it you are flying blind.  Poorly compacted fill will lead to settlement, possible embankment failure and damage to your brand new, expensive, beautiful development, and possibly your neighbour's too.  So get it right at the outset.

Retaining Wall Design & Construction

Slopes need to be retained to provide additional space and level platforms for development.  Retaining walls to support these cut and fills can be expensive to build, and even more expensive when they fail, so they need to be designed correctly and of course built properly.  Read more>>>

Geohazards

Population growth is leading to the development of more marginal areas where the effects of land slides, erosion, problem soils and coastal geohazards are more keenly felt, made worse by impending climate change.   Read more>>>
