GIC Water Systems utilizes state-of-the-art well and borehole logging equipment with the capacity of conducting logging surveys to 2000 feet. All well and borehole logging equipment is contained in a portable trailer.
Borehole geophysical surveys are conducted using equipment manufactured by Robertson Geologging Ltd. Borehole geophysical survey data can be provided as field copies of the various logs using a Printrex 820 DL thermal printer, in ASCII format on CD-ROM, or as finished color copies.
GIC Water Systems currently own the following sondes:
Electric Log (8,16,32,64" Normal Res.)
Applications: Determination of water quality, permeable zoned, and porosity
Single Point Resistivity
Applications: Lithology determination, Mineral detection
Applications: Indentifying hard and soft lithology; Locating cracks, fissures, caving, faulting, and casing breaks; Correction of other logs affected be borhole diameter
High Resolution Impellor Flowmeter
Applications: Flow measurement within the borehole, Locating permeable zones, Detecting casing leaks
Temperature & Fluid Conductivity
Applications: Fluid salinity, Locating zones of different water quality, Identifying zones of in-flow and out-flow, Temperature gradient, Water level determination, Locating grout behing casing, Temperature compensation of other logs
Full Wave Form Sonic
Applications: Rock strength and elasticity, Correction of seismic velocity, Indication of fractures and permeability in hard rock, Locating poor or missed cement behind casing
Dual Induction with Natural Gamma
Applications: Indicates permeable zones and porosity, Formation water salinity, Long term well monitoring
Water/Gas Discrete Sampler
Applications: Sampling fluid at a given depth for surface analysis
Additional geophysical sondes are available per project requirements. All projects are completed be a Registered Professional Geologist (GA & FL). Our project personnel have advanced degrees and are required to attend annual continuing education courses.
