Davis Base, Antarctica

A civil project that is taking place at Davis Base that will require extensive (for Antarctica) cut and fill in hard rock. The project will require rock testing that will assist decision making around preferred excavation methods and quarrying processes. Our client is working with the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD), and in conjunction with the testing sent to Bamford Rock Testing,  the AAD is also preparing for a crushing trial of boulder samples in Hobart (tonalite and dolerite samples).
