FOUNDATION TRENCH AND PROPERTY INSPECTIONS
A Property Inspection may be required to provide an additional level of assurance where a slight mining risk is indicated by the Mining Search. The inspection comprises a survey of a dwelling and/or land by a Mining Consultant for any signs of mining related defects. Appropriate recommendations are made if potentially adverse features are identified.
Foundation Trench inspections are required for new developments in mining districts when anomalous ground conditions are exposed during development, when an additional level of assurance is required or when confirmation of competent ground is requested.
