Meet the Crew

We’re a pretty happy group here at Geotechnicoal. Our team is passionate, dependable, and results oriented! Who we are determines what we do. So let’s meet the team and also look at what we do.

What we do

The role of Geotechnical Engineer and Geologist are often misunderstood. In fact, the usual response when we tell people what we do is ‘oh so you like rocks?’

That’s partly true, but in a coal mining context Geologists and Geotechnical Engineers are highly skilled professionals that are concerned with understanding the earth, its composition and how it is likely to respond to mining activities.

Geotechnicoal is a consultancy specialising in underground coal mine geotechnics and geology.

In addition to work at the 'coalface', Geotechnicoal has also created a successful Strata Monitoring Application used in underground coal mines throughout Queensland and New South Wales.
