The 2D shear-wave velocity cross-section below is from a previous survey in support of a geotechnical investigation at a tailings storage facility in Nevada to identify and characterize a weak clay layer in the subsurface ahead of a planned raise of the tailings. A number of survey lines were collected at both the toe of and on the tailings dam to map the spatial extents and depth of this weak clay layer, in order to optimize the concurrent drilling program and provide cost-efficient mapping of the survey area.
