Onshore, Mining, Nuclear


Over the last decade, we’ve worked on a wide array of nuclear projects due to their sensitive structures and significant safety concerns. In addition to our advanced technological methods, we bring an added value of unique engineering solutions developed specifically for these challenging projects.


The mining industry operates in remote locations, in hostile conditions and is hugely dependent upon geology and geotechnics. Our range of solutions support mining developments, onshore and offshore, at different stages for greenfield developments or for extensions to existing operations:

  • Desk based site appraisal
  • Design, supervision and management of resource, geotechnical and geophysical survey campaigns
  • Rock mass assessment (Q / RMR / GSI)
  • Open pit geotechnical design
  • Underground excavation and rock mass support design
  • Tailings dam design
  • Ground Improvement, access road and temporary works design
  • Excavability assessments, onshore and offshore

Our onshore projects

At Cathie, we deliver geological, geospatial, geophysical and geotechnical engineering solutions for offshore and near-shore projects throughout the project lifecycle. Our innovative solutions enable cost effective project delivery by managing seabed risk and solving technical challenges.
