GBG Group is a specialist consulting company providing a range of geotechnical, environmental and engineering investigation services utilising advanced subsurface imaging techniques. The comprehensive information we provide is used to minimise risk to projects. Whether these risks are from unforeseen ground conditions or limited information on how a structure is built, GBG Group can fill in the gaps and provide extensive information that cannot be obtained from the more traditional approaches to subsurface investigations. A multi-national company providing services since 1982, the company has offices in Cambridge, London, New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, and Perth. GBG has worked with a diverse clientele that ranges from government bodies, mining companies, engineering consultancies, developers, asset managers and private owners.

GBG Group leads the Australian market in mine scale geophysical engineering consultancy. Our specialisations include:

  • Pre-Feasibility – Greenfield feasibility geophysical planning and consultancy,
  • Feasibility – Initial 2D ground investigation for infrastructure and tailings storage facility (TSF) footprint planning,
  • Construction – 3D subsurface investigation campaigns for material stiffness and depth to rock,
  • TSF Wall raise – Wall integrity investigations complete with detailed risk area classification,
  • Lifetime maintenance – Synthetic Aperture Radar Monitoring for wall movement and tailings levels
  • Environmental leakages – Utilisation of industry standard resistivity and/or time and frequency-based EM systems to identify, map and track fluid pathways or leaking TSFs.
  • Seismic Profiling – Completion of seismic surveys to 200m depth within active of passive mine areas.

Our team consists of a range of professionals that include: geophysicists, engineers, geologists and non-destructive testing (NDT) technicians. Our senior staff have over 20 years’ experience in their respective fields. They have worked on a diverse range of projects that vary in scope, size and cost from completing test pits, to comprehensive geotechnical investigations for large TSF and infrastructure projects.

GBG is leading the way in combining geotechnical, geophysical, and drone datasets where 3D modelling can provide extreme detail of the subsurface. We have a variety of 3D models and projects on show where visitors can come and see the modelling capabilities GBG can provide. Drop by stand T31 and have a chat.
