Slope stability and highwall safety are at the forefront for all open-pit mining operations. Our seasoned geotechnical engineers and highly experienced staff bring extensive and specialized expertise in resolving your geotechnical problems. GeoStabilization can respond within 24-hours to geohazard issues to safeguard your personnel and infrastructure. Typical operational services include:
Rockfall Barriers – protecting dewatering wells and allow safe access
Drape System – allowing full depth product recovery
GeoStabilization has extensive experience repairing emergency landslides and stabilizing slopes and access roads. We design difficult access micropile foundations, provide rockfall protection scaling, install catchment barriers, and build retaining walls for various mining infrastructure.
Our equipment is purpose-built to allow for exceptional production in difficult access areas, including isolated geological exploration sites. This expertise translates into rapid, low-cost mitigation with minimal environmental impact and permitting time, allowing for continuous access and production. GeoStabilization’s services include:
It’s common to see infrastructure footings over weakened rock masses degrade with time. GeoStabilization can develop a remediation strategy that ensures a infrastructure foundation is preserved and the structural integrity maintained for your valued assets.

These photos illustrate a project where GeoStabilization prepped a mining dam’s degraded 100-year-old concrete surface. The solution achieved an adequate pull-off bond strength for the newly applied fiber reinforced shotcrete, as well as rehabilitation of the concrete on the exterior portion of the outlet and access tunnels.

In the 1970s, a massive rockslide buried Interstate 81 in Montgomery County, VA while it was being constructed. The mountain of debris took months to clear. More recently, VDOT engineers and geologists noticed active movement near the historic slide, and proactively began an emergency rock slope mitigation effort.
