Infrastructure construction typically involves excavation and rearrangement of large volumes of material. The type of rock can be the cost-determining factor in some projects. Certain types of black shale pose a major challenge as they need to be treated as hazardous waste, increasing costs significantly.
Toxic black shale types with high sulphide and uranium content,can be hard to distinguish from other unproblematic shale types. From the geophysical perspective problematic shale sticks out from other shale types. We create 3D models that outline black shale units, helping the infrastructure planner to optimize the project.
