4 Elements Consulting was recently contracted by Metallica Minerals to monitor water quality at a potential future silica sand mine at Cape Flattery, Cape York to establish baseline water quality. Working with traditional owners, 4 Elements Consulting assessed both water table depth and quality using samples taken from various monitoring wells located on the project site from a depth of up to 60m. Monitoring wells were purged prior to sample collection to ensure samples were representative of the aquifer. Samples were collected in NATA approved sample containers before being stored and chilled for transport. Surface water samples were also taken from gullies and creek lines across the site.
4 Elements Consulting has extensive water testing experience, with the ability to test for a range of contaminants in a variety of situations including saltwater, freshwater and estuarine environments, irrigation water, boreholes and wells, and wastewater and effluent.
