Soil profiling

13 July

Wheal Jane Consultancy were recently engaged to establish the baseline chemistry of an interesting site to aid in attaining safety and environmental certification based on the current storage of explosives for the quarry industry.

To establish the base line levels of the soil constituents a number of samples were taken using a hand auger, samples were at a depth of between 0 and 500mm and were biased to the north east of the site taking into account a south westerly prevailing wind.

The collected samples were then tested at a suitably accredited laboratory for a variety of different metals and hydrocarbons the results were interpreted with a report detailing the differing zones of the site being submitted to the relevant statutory bodies.
