A hydroGEOPHYSICS Service
Our success in the mining industry is built upon the application of hydrogeological and geophysical principles as an integral part of understanding heap operations.
HGI has an extensive work history within the mining industry; we use a suite of tools and technologies dedicated specifically to mining geophysics and hydrometallurgy. Our surveys enhance the understanding of the dynamic and complex processes that occur in heap leach operations. HeapSolutions applies HGI’s unique experience and knowledge in mining – our technologies can track solution movement within large earth-engineered structures, as well as provide key hydrologic and metallurgic information used to reduce reagent costs, lower water usage, decrease slope failure risk, and, most importantly, enhance metal recovery.
HGI is a leader in the development of data acquisition technology that provides real-time information for heap leach characterization and enhanced metal recovery.
HGI’s services combine mining geophysics and hydrometallurgical-based technologies to provide greater understanding of the subsurface. For example, we use electrical resistivity geophysics to track solution movement in heap leach pads, and to provide geochemical mapping of substrates flowing downstream from tailings dams, or heat generation and acid rock drainage in waste rock piles. When combined with hydrogeological principles, these complimentary datasets guide us toward a more coherent conceptual model of the engineered structure.
