In a perfect example of the Wheal Jane Group companies working together to provide seamless solutions for our clients, Wheal Jane Consultancy have completed another successful site investigation project on behalf of Carnon Contracting and their client.
The site at Telegraph Hill in St Day is in an area known to have seen extensive historical mining activity. Previous mine searches had identified a risk from shallow and surface mining features. The purpose of the drilling investigation was to identify any features and establish their exact position on the ground. Several were revealed by the drilling. Interpretation by a mining geologist suggested the presence of a small stope, rock pillars and a shaft type feature extending to surface.
A remediation plan can now be implemented in order to render the site safe for development to continue.
