Hardrock Sampling
Our team of geologists may provide any kind of necessary support when it comes to representative and state-of-the-art sampling and testing of soil and hardrock - in any phase of a project. The main field of expertise are laboratory investigations on the excavatability and abrasivity of hardrock and soil.

In order to provide representative samples for laboratory investigations we prepare sampling concepts and carry out soil and block sampling or hardrock core drillings with our own equipment.

The paper presented below resumes some of the main aspects on representative hardrock sampling (german article with english abstract):

In the course of laboratory investigations we may assist your project in all phases of investigation, providing concepts and testing recommendations, coordinating specialised testing institutes and interpretating the incoming data.
