Mining Consultancy

Our mining consultancy team is vastly experienced and has local mining knowledge which is second-to-none. The records and archives we keep offer a depth of information unrivalled in the southwest. For these reasons, Wheal Jane Consultancy is the southwest’s premier mining consultancy.

Our mine searches are tailored to your site. We keep the information concise and relevant, and always present a clear conclusion.

If your mine search identifies the need for a site investigation, we can undertake that too. We use our own in-house contracting team who also have years of drilling and trenching experience.

We tailor any intrusive investigation to the results of the mine search and to your needs. Our standard turnaround is typically 48 hours from receipt; however, an expedited service is also available.

At Wheal Jane Consultancy, we draw upon our wealth of experience in order to efficiently oversee the remediation of your mining feature. We can produce a preliminary remedial design and arrange for it to be signed off by a structural engineer. Our sister company Carnon Contracting can then complete the remediation.


Foundations Inspections

An alternative method of ground investigation is to examine the footings of the development. Once foundation trenches have been excavated, but before concrete is deposited, the ground profile is inspected for signs of mining activity. This method is suitable when a development is situated within a mining district but there is no direct documentation of mining activity. The inspection process allows for a detailed examination of the geology of the site and for identification of any signs of ground disturbance.
